Trinity sign Tison on loan from Dragons

Wakefield Trinity is delighted to confirm the signing of Ugo Tison on loan from Catalans Dragons on an initial four-week deal.

Hailing from France, the stand-off started his career in Rugby League at Saint-Esteve XIII Catalan before joining the Dragons on a permanent deal in 2022.

Tison made his full debut with the club against Wigan Warriors in the same season, whilst also featuring on the national stage in France’s international against England earlier this year.

However, now, the 22-year-old heads to West Yorkshire, signing with Trinity on a month-long loan deal, adding extra cover to the number nine and halves spots as well as any injuries picked up over the next four weeks.

Speaking on his arrival, Trinity Head Coach, Mark Applegarth, said, “I am really pleased that we have been able to get Ugo on board.

“With Morgan Smith out for the season and a couple of lads returning from injuries, we felt it was important to bring in some cover in the hooker and half position in the short term.

“I am looking forward to working with him over the next month.”

Whilst, Ugo admitted that he was excited by the prospect of playing in West Yorkshire and hopes his introduction will benefit the team.

“I’m happy to be here, I hope we will win as many games as possible. I understand that I need to train hard and make a positive impact on the pitch.

“I feel that I am a simple player, priding myself on good vision and solid defence. I hope my visit will be positive for Wakefield.”

Wakefield Trinity would like to thank all the supporters of our Squadbuilder initiative, which has been critical in supporting the first team over the last few years. To sign up for Squadbuilder, please click HERE.
