Catalan Dragons have signed French junior international Benjamin Garcia.

Garcia, 20, a hooker or second rower, is currently playing in Australia for Brisbane Broncos reserve team but will return to France next week to take up a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Dragons.

The former Avignon forward paid his own fare to Australia to play for Queensland Cup team Wynnum Manly Seagulls, where he was named player of the year last season, and he caught the eye of the Broncos.

"I'm very happy to sign for Catalans Dragons," Garcia said. "It's a good opportunity for me to play in Super League after a great experience in Australia. I'm looking forward to joining the club."

Catalan coach Laurent Frayssinous said: "He is one of the best French players of his generation and I'm delighted to add him to our squad.

"He is a tough player, he runs hard and he is a good tackler. He has all the basis to become a good rugby league player."
