Tomkins given bizarre squad number for Catalans

England full-back Sam Tomkins will wear number 29 for his new side Catalans Dragons next season with Tony Gigot retaining the number 1 jersey.

Matty Smith, the other former Wigan star to join the Dragons for the 2019 campaign, has been handed the number 7 shirt while Samisoni Langi will wear 6.

Matt Whitley, who joined from Widnes last month, will wear 17 with the rest of the squad numbers staying relatively the same from the 2018 season.

Backed by many as the dark horses for next year, Steve McNamara’s side will be looking to win their maiden Super League crown in 2019 after winning the Challenge Cup for the first in their history this August.
