Tony Gigot, who captained France against England last month, has committed his future to Toulouse ahead of their first season in the Betfred Super League.

The 30 year old joined Toulouse mid-way through last season after impressing for hometown club Avignon in the French Elite 1 Championship.

The 16-cap French international, who can operate at both full-back and in the halves, has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

Commenting on the deal, Gigot said: “I am very happy to continue the adventure with Toulouse. I thank the club as well as all the staff for their confidence.”

Toulouse president Bernard Sarrazain added: “To have a player like Tony in our ranks is a privilege.

“His experience and multiple qualities make him a key player in the team. I am absolutely delighted that he is staying with us to play in the Super League.”

Gigot has made more than 200 career appearances for Catalans Dragons, Avignon, London Broncos, Toronto Wolfpack, Wakefield and Toulouse.

He helped Catalans win the Challenge Cup in 2018 and became the first Frenchman to win the Lance Todd Trophy in the final at Wembley that year.
