After many discussions over the last weeks between Hull KR, Iain Thornley manager Franck Endacott, his lawyer Richard Cramer and the RFL judicial department, Catalans Dragons received the green light to register Iain Thornley in their Super League squad.

Catalans Dragons CEO Christophe Jouffret said : “We finally manage to reach an agreement this afternoon for the transfer of Iain Thornley and he is now registered into our squad. On behalf of the Catalans Dragons club, I would like to thank all those who have helped Iain to get his license at our club and our new player can now be focused only on his preparation.”
