Catalans Dragons have signed former Australia and New South Wales prop Willie Mason on a one-year deal.

The 35-year-old, who played six Super League games for Hull KR in 2011 before moving to French rugby union side Toulon, was at Manly last season.

He played 290 NRL games during his 15-year career spent with five clubs, including Canterbury, where he won the 2004 Premiership.

“Willie knows the job a prop has to do,” coach Laurent Frayssinous said.

“He is a physical and aggressive player, both in attack and in defence and we have spoken a lot about the quality of our group and he is really excited to join the club.”
