Catalan Dragons: Michael Oldfield joins on two-year contract

Catalan Dragons have signed winger Michael Oldfield from Sydney Roosters on a two-year contract.

Oldfield, 23, was part of the Roosters squad that won the 2013 NRL title,  having also been part of the Manly Sea Eagles side which did so in 2011.

He also won his first international cap for Tonga earlier this year.

Dragons head coach Laurent Frayssinous said: "He is a young and fast player and his pace will be a great value in our backline next season."

Oldfield is the Super League club's third, and probably last, close-season signing.

"We found an agreement with the Sydney Roosters and his agent to release Michael from the final year of his contract and allow him to join the Dragons," said chief executive Christophe Jouffret.

"After the signings of Jeff Lima and Ben Pomeroy, we were looking for a fast winger and we are delighted to welcome Michael to Perpignan."
