Catalans Dragons have appointed former Widnes first-team coach Eamon O'Carroll to Steve McNamara's staff.

He will serve as assistant to McNamara at the Challenge Cup holders, alongside former France half-back Thomas Bosc.

Ex-Wigan, Hull and Widnes prop O'Carroll, 31, retired because of a neck injury in 2017 and joined the coaching ranks at the Vikings.

"Eamon is an extremely gifted young coach who's enthusiasm and energy will be a great asset," McNamara said.
