Larroyer Latest Fax Extension
With under a month to go until the squad report back to training, we're delighted to bring you news of another player putting pen to paper to extend their role with the club.
Forward Kevin Larroyer inks a new deal, following a debut season which saw the team reach the Semi Finals of the Challenge Cup for the first time since 1988.
The versatile Frenchman, who played Super League rugby for Catalans Dragons, Hull KR and Castleford before arriving at the Shay from Leigh, was a consistent presence throughout Fax’s troubled 2019 season, although some of his best performances arrived away from his traditional back row position.
“He came to us as a back row, but I think he was probably most effective for us playing as a middle,” said coach Simon Grix.
“He’s strong, he’s fit, he trains properly and he carries the ball well. I’m not saying his days as a back rower are gone, but I like players to be versatile. He’s also a popular character off the field; he sets high standards and, because he’s respected within the group, he drags other players with him.
“I’m really pleased he’s staying with us.”
