Shock Super League groundshare proposed in council meeting

Catalans Dragons could be set for an incredible move away from the Stade Gilbert Brutus.

Reports have been circulating that the Perpignan Mayor has suggested that the Dragons could leave the Brutus to share with Top 14 rugby union side USAP at the Stade Aime Giral.

A member of the Catalans and Toulouse media has revealed on Twitter that there has been a council meeting where the Mayor was eager to draft in a professional football side to the city, with Canet FC the name jumping out.

That also left the Mayor inferring that the Dragons then leave the Stade Gilbert Brutus which has been the French side’s home since 2007.

That news has gone down like a lead balloon amongst Catalans supporters, with a number of them voicing their anger on the Rugby Forum.

The Dragons reached their first Super League Grand Final in 2021 after beating Hull KR in the semi-finals in a cauldron of noise at the Brutus.

It is this atmosphere that will be incredible difficult to replicate anywhere else as Steve McNamara’s rejuvenation of the Dragons continues to grow.

The likes of Mitchell Pearce have signed at the Dragons, with Tyrone May and Dylan Napa heavily linked with a move as well.
