“How being league leaders should be celebrated” – How social media reacted to Catalans lifting the League Leaders’ Shield

Yesterday, Catalans made history becoming the first non English team to claim the League Leaders’ Shield. In fact, they became only the eighth different side to claim the shield. But the question remains, can they become only the fifth team to win the Grand Final?

Nonetheless, there was plenty of reaction on Twitter to this historic moment, but what was the general consensus across social media?

Some Catalans fans were a little disappointed initially about the lack of talk about this historic moment believing that it should’ve been given more coverage across all platforms.

Others took this opportunity to question the name of the shield. In fact, they argued that the Dragons should be considered the Champions whilst the Grand Final should be akin to the Champions League in football.

That said, the shield definitely appears to be moving forward in terms of what it means. One fan was glad to see players are now given medals.

Even Leeds fans were pleased to see the Dragons claim the trophy and were happy to see how much it meant to the French outfit.

It most definitely did mean a lot to Catalans if the reaction of their skipper is anything to go by.

Heart-warmingly, one man got over surgery to see the Dragons lift the shield.
