Catalan Dragons will have a French coach for the first time next season after appointing Laurent Frayssinous.

The former Dragons player, 35, was named as the successor to Trent Robinson and has been handed a two-year contract with the Perpignon-based outfit.

Frayssinous joined the coaching staff at Stade Gilbert Brutus after hanging up his boots in 2007 and will be the youngest head coach in Super League next term.

The former France international cut his coaching teeth under Mick Potter and was also right-hand man to Kevin Walters and Robinson at Stade Gilbert Brutus.

"It's a new chapter in the Dragons history with the appointment of a French head coach, but I think Laurent is ready," said chairman Bernard Guasch.

"He worked hard during the last six years and we believe that he was the ideal candidate to take the Dragons forward."

Frayssinous said: "I'm honoured to become the new head coach and the first French coach in the Dragons history, but it's just the beginning for me.

"I've worked really hard over the last two years and it's a great reward. It was a great opportunity for me and I'm looking forward to taking this next step in my coaching career. I feel I'm ready now."
