Ottawa add Gavin Marguerite for 2021

Ottawa Aces have confirmed the signing of winger Gavin Marguerite ahead of their debut season in Betfred League 1 next year.

Marguerite is a product of the Toulouse Olympique Academy having made his first team debut back in 2016.

The French flyer crossed for an impressive 40 tries in his 70 appearances for Toulouse before joining Catalans Dragons for the 2020 season. He also featured as part of France’s Downer World Cup 9s squad last Autumn.

On the move, Marguerite said: “I chose to join Ottawa Aces as it’s an exciting project.

“I want to be part of it and help the club to reach their objectives. Ottawa is also the Canadian capital and for all French people it is a dream to go and play over there.”

Aces Head Coach, Laurent Frayssinous, said: “Gavin is a fantastic signing for us.

“He has all the attributes to become a great outside back in our game. He is fast, strong, powerful, and reads the defences well. He also can play multiple positions in the backs and will add a lot to our squad.”

Marguerite becomes Ottawa’s eighth signing since their formation joining Louis Jouffret, Tom Gilmore, Matty Fozard, Ted Chapelhow, James Chapelhow, Sam Wilde and Pat Moran.
