Folau, a dual code international, was fired last May by Rugby Australia over a social media post warning "hell awaits" gay people and others he considers sinners.
The 30-year-old has been training with the French side for two weeks and was expected to make his Dragons debut at Wakefield last Sunday.
But he was left out of the line-up amid the fall out over the French club's decision to sign him.
