Catalans Dragons centre Brayden Wiliame has ended speculation over his future by signing a new two-year contract with the French club.

The 25-year-old Fijian International was out of contract with the Dragons and had been linked with a move away from the club but will remain at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium at least until the end of 2020.

The announcement follows the recent re-signing of forwards Benjamin Garcia, Remi Casty and Sam Moa and comes after the club’s second appearance in the Challenge Cup final.

Wiliame said: “I am happy to be staying with the Dragons for another two years.

“I thank the club for giving me the opportunity to come across from Australia two years ago.

“Our best football is ahead of us.”

Wiliame, who played in the NRL for Parramatta, Newcastle and Manly, has scored 17 tries in 42 Super League appearances so far for the Catalans and was in the Fiji team that reached the semi-finals of the 2017 World Cup.

Catalans coach Steve McNamara said: “Brayden has been one our most consistent performers over the season.

“He has made huge efforts to improve all aspects of his game. In particular he has added some real quality to his attack whilst physically getting himself in great shape.

“He is very popular within the playing group and at the age of 25, we feel his best years are still ahead of him.”
