Catalans Dragons to lose Dean Whare for THREE MONTHS

Catalans Dragons have been dealt a major blow with the news that centre Dean Whare will be out for three months.

The centre ruptured his left pec during his side’s win over Hull KR and was forced to leave the field.

The former Penrith Panthers star will now have to undergo surgery in what is a huge loss for the French side.

Catalans will have to make do without Whare for a lengthy period of time, including this weekend’s clash against Featherstone Rovers in the Challenge Cup.

Rovers, meanwhile, will travel to the south of France to take on Catalans Dragons on Saturday afternoon.

The club released this statement in a bid to ensure all fans can watch the game: “The club understands that travel to France with less than two weeks notice is not possible for many supporters. With that in mind the club have organised a screening of the game to be shown at our local partner club; Featherstone Lions. The game will be shown on a big screen in the Lions’ indoor training facility as well as in the clubhouse.

“The event looks set to be a superb afternoon out as the Lions will also play host to Hull Dockers in the NCL.

Rovers CEO, Martin Vickers said: “We’re really pleased to be able to offer this option for our loyal supporters, many of whom will have been as frustrated as I was with the draw.

“In doing this we’re also delivering on our promise to bring the Lions and the Rovers closer together.

“The event is being put together at considerable cost to the cost to us, we hope this benefits the Lions and that the Blue Wall show their support as they always do.”
