Club career[edit]

Toulouse Olympique[edit]

Larroyer began his professional career with Toulouse Olympique.

Catalans Dragons[edit]

He moved to the Catalans Dragons for the 2012 season.

Hull Kingston Rovers[edit]

In 2013 Larroyer was signed by Hull KR from Catalan Dragons on a season long loan deal.[4] After an impressive season at Hull KR, making 22 appearances for the Robins and scoring seven tries the club extended Larroyer's loan deal for another year for season 2015.[5]

In September 2015, the French international committed his future to Hull Kingston Rovers by signing a 3-year deal taking his service with the Robins into 2018.

Castleford Tigers[edit]

He was released from his contract following Hull KR's relegation from Super League at the end of the 2016 season and subsequently joined Castleford Tigers in 2017.[6]

International career[edit]

In 2013 Larroyer was selected to represent his home country France in the Rugby League World Cup.[8] Larroyer played for his country at the 2014 European Championship. During a 22-12 defeat by Ireland in Dublin, Larroyer scored a converted try for his home nation.[9] During 2015 Larroyer played for France in the European Championship.[10] France launched their 2015 European Championship campaign with a 31-14 win over Ireland which went some way to erasing the memory of their defeat by the Wolfhounds in last year's corresponding fixture where Larroyer scored a try to help the French side secure their victory.[11] In 2016 Larroyer was selected to play for his country in France's lone international against England in Avignon for the Four Nations where France showed a marked improvement from the last time they played against England.[12]
