France international hooker Eloi Pelissier has signed a new two-year deal with Toulouse Olympique with the option of a third.

The 31-year-old made the switch to Toulouse in 2021 from London Broncos. He featured in 14 games and scored 10 tries during their history-making season, winning promotion to Super League. 

During their inaugural season in the top flight, Pelissier made 19 appearances, scoring three tries.

Club president Bernard Sarrazain said: “A player like Eloi is essential in a group. His determination, his experience and his fighting spirit can only help us to get back into the Super League next season.”
