Eloi Pelissier: Catalans Dragons hooker to leave post-season
Catalans Dragons have confirmed France international hooker Eloi Pelissier will leave when his current contract expires in the off-season.
Pelissier, 25, has scored 23 tries in 144 Super League appearances for his home-town team since his 2011 debut.
His exit follows that of Glenn Stewart and the as-yet unconfirmed departures of Todd Carney and Dave Taylor.
"I think it's a good opportunity for him to have a fresh start," chairman Bernard Guasch said.
"Eloi was looking for a club where he could be the first choice in his position.
"He has great qualities but I think he gets so much support here that he may need a calmer environment to succeed."
Full-back Morgan Escare is also believed to be leaving the Stade Gilbert Brutus, while Greg Mounis and Pat Richards are retiring.
