Catalans Dragons have raided fellow French club Toulouse to sign Jordan Dezaria and Gavin Marguerite.

Dezaria started his career with the Dragons in 2016, making four Super League appearances before leaving the club.

The 23-year-old prop or second row forward left the South of France to join Leigh Centurions in 2018 and had loan spells with Oldham and Workington Town. He returned to France with Toulouse in 2019 and played 13 times for the Championship side.

Marguerite, who can play on the wing or centre, has come up through the ranks at Toulouse and has scored 40 tries in 70 appearances.
