Catalans Dragons back-rower Ugo Perez has joined Championship side Whitehaven on loan until the end of the season.

Perez, 21, is a product of the Catalans academy and has been involved in their matchday squads.

The two clubs have built up strong ties, with players such as Jordan Sigismeau and Louis Jouffret spending time at Haven.

"It's important for him to have some game time," said Dragons head coach Laurent Frayssinous.

"I would like to thank Whitehaven for giving him this opportunity."
