Super League’s tallest player returns after spell in rugby union

Rugby league is a game full of big men but there’s none bigger, or at least taller, than Corentin Le Cam with the Frenchman standing at a whopping six foot nine inches tall.

Le Cam featured for Catalans previously in Super League notching up 11 appearances but he was always a standout on the field due to his sheer stature.

However he took his talents elsewhere as he moved towards rugby union, a sport where players at heights exceeding Le Cam exist quite frequently.

Le Cam didn’t re-sign with the Dragons at the end of the season leaving him unattached but the switch to union still came as a shock and shame as he had impressed for France at the Rugby League World Cup.

He signed with Ceret who play in the French Federal 1 league. Speaking exclusively to Serious About Rugby League last year, Le Cam explained whether he could return to rugby league.

“I don’t know it depends on my adaptation to rugby and my performances,” he said.

“It also depends on my new objectives in life, but if it doesn’t work in union I will come back to league for sure.”

He has now made a return and he’s back in Perpignan, albeit it with Catalans reserves, with Le Cam being announced by the Super League side via their website with the 24-year-old re-joining the club that developed him.

He will link up with Justin Morgan and Remi Casty who have assumed the roles of head coach and assistant.

That comes after Eamonn O’Carroll announced he’s set to head to Bradford for 2024.
