·2-min read

Super League newcomers Toulouse Olympique have confirmed their squad numbers for their first season in the top flight.

Sylvain Houles’ side have made four new signings for their maiden campaign in Super League. Hooker James Cunningham, who arrived from Huddersfield, takes the number 19 shirt from departed centre Bastien Ader.

Centre Chris Hanksinon, who has joined from Super League giants Wigan, will wear 21. France international Gadwin Springer takes the number 22 shirt, with Scotland international winger Matty Russell wearing 25.

Mali-born prop Justin Sangare is thought of as one of the most promising forwards in the game. The four-time France international retains 23, the number he wore when he made his debut for Toulouse in 2016 as an 18-year-old.

In a change of numbers from last season, Latrell Schaumkel will wear the number two this season. Former Catalans half-back Lucas Albert has been given number seven, with him set to partner captain Johnathon Ford in the halves.
