Lowly Catalans set for high altitude training camp

Catalans Dragons will make use of the one-week break due to the Challenge Cup final by spending three days in the Pyrenees for a high altitude training camp.

Steve McNamara and his players will go to Font Romeu, with the club hoping that the camp will create a change in fortunes as they’re currently staring relegation in the face.

After losing two of their opening three Qualifiers matches, things aren’t looking bright for the Dragons. General manager Alex Chan has been speaking about the upcoming training camp, which will start tomorrow.

“Font Romeu offers high level facilities and this camp is an opportunity to take the boys out of their habits,” he said.

“It’s the first camp for Steve and the team since he arrived at the club and he wanted to bring the boys out of Gilbert Brutus.

“This camp will strengthen the cohesion of the group and help the boys to feel refreshed mentally before the next four crucial games.”
