Toulouse Olympique star Guy Armitage has locked in his club for 2023 and beyond after impressing in the French club’s maiden year of Super League.
The French side have been able to keep hold of the star centre following a brilliant season in Super League, with Armitage signing a new two-year deal.
After taking up a deal with the London Broncos, Covid-19 struck and the long-haired centre found himself without a club for 2020, instead turning to the French League 2.
Even then though the League 2 season did not start and Toulouse boss Sylvain Houles took advantage of that, bringing Armitage in on trial for three weeks before signing him permanently.
In 2021, handicapped by injuries, he played only two games but still scored three tries and showed his ability that made him one of the dangerous Toulouse players in Super League.
During the 2022 season, Guy showed his full potential with seven tries scored and three assists in 15 games played.
Bernard Sarrazain, President of TO XIII, could not hide his delight with keeping one of Toulouse’s best players:“Being one of the assets of our line of attack, it was very important to extend Guy.
“His athletic power allows the team to be more incisive in every game. I am very happy to count him among us for the next few years.”
Armitage himself was over the moon to sign a new deal at the Stade Ernest Wallon and outlined his determination to help Toulouse get back to Super League: “I’m very happy to have extended the TO. The club wants to go back to the Super League and that’s a big common goal.
“We have a good group, whilst my family and I feel at home in Toulouse and it is an adventure that we wanted to continue together.”
