Bosc new Catalans captain

Kevin Walters announced after the last training before the match in Toulouse the appointment of Thomas Bosc as team captain.

The young Catalan scrum-half takes over from Greg Bird, who left the club during the off-season to join the NRL club Gold Coast Titans.

"Thomas is at the club since the beginning. He has improved dramatically since his debut in Super League. He is a key player for the Catalans and the national team. I feel him ready to take on this role and I guess it is natural that I have given him the captaincy. "Said Kevin Walters.

Moreover, Jerome Guisset retains his role as club captain. His job on the field requires him to make several changes during the games and he couldn't be the team captain in these conditions.
