Gigot on trial at Wolfpack

Tony Gigot joins Toronto Wolfpack on trial

Toronto Wolfpack are excited to announce the signing of French international and Super League veteran Tony Gigot.

Joining the Club on a four-week trial basis, Gigot has the ability to play in several different positions including fullback, centre and stand-off.

In 2018 Gigot was pivotal in Catalans remarkable run that would see them claim the Challenge Cup title with a 20-14 win over Warrington Wolves in a thrilling Final. 

Gigot was named man of the match in both the Final and Semi-Final, the first French player ever to be bestowed the honour.

Brian McDermott commented on the signing ahead of Gigot’s arrival into the Club’s Manchester camp: “Tony has proven his talent across a long and successful career and has shown he has what it takes to play at an elite level. 

"We are extremely excited to see what he can do in his return to Super League. This will be a four-week trial period and Tony has shown great commitment in staking his claim with the Wolfpack and I look forward to working with him again.”

The 29-year-old first appeared at the international level in 2010 and scored a try in France’s 58-24 triumph over Ireland. 

In the years since, Gigot has played in a World Cup and two European Cups, registering a total of 56 points for his country.

After a stint with the London Broncos youth team, where he served under Brian McDermott as Head Coach, Gigot made his Super League debut with Catalans Dragons in 2010, going on to feature in 17 fixtures across the season including two Challenge Cup clashes. 

Throughout a career boasting almost 200 professional games, Gigot has also played with well-renowned teams Toulouse Olympique and Australian 2016 NRL Premiers Cronulla Sharks.
