Catalan Dragons have signed utility back Tony Gigot until the end of the season.
The French international made 22 appearances for the Dragons between 2010 and 2011, and will return to the Stade Gilbert Brutus until the end of Super League XX.
Gigot told Sky Sports; “I’m delighted to be back the club. I want to prove now I deserve this second chance.
“The club has really changed and I’m happy to be back at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium.”
The 24 year-old spent two years playing in France’s Elite One Championship for Toulouse Olympique and Avignon after he left the Dragons.
Gigot was then signed for one year by Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks before joining for London Broncos at the start of last year. He managed only two appearances for the Capital club before being released.
He has been back at his hometown club, Avignon, this season and Dragons coach Laurent Frayssinous has been impressed with his development since his first stint with Catalan; “Tony has been one of the best players in the French championship this season,” he told Sky Sports.
“He has matured a lot since his first experience with the Dragons and is ready for this new challenge.
“He is a young French player with great potential and that’s why we have chosen to give him that second chance. His signing will add depth and competition in the squad.”
Gigot has also earned seven caps playing for France and could make his second Dragons debut against Featherstone Rovers in the Challenge Cup this Sunday.
