Super League side calls up five players to first team squad following injury concerns

Five players from Catalans Dragons reserve team have been included in the training squad of the Dragons to start the preseason week 7.

Léo Laurent, Mike Parenti, Bastien Scimone, Ugo Tison and Tanguy Zenon have joined the professional squad of Steve McNamara to take part in the training sessions ahead of the 2023 season.

These five players, who made their Super League debut last season at Wigan, will be with the Dragons’ training squad from now on.

Steve McNamara : “Having reviewed closely our reserve grade team since the start of the elite season we are happy to promote 5 of those into our full time squad. They will bring great energy and enthusiasm into the group and with continued hard work we will be looking to evolve them into future Dragons players.”

This comes after news that former Castleford Tigers man Mike McMeeken could miss the start of the season with a broken arm sustained on World Cup duty with Shaun Wane’s England side.

Meanwhile, Sam Tomkins and Fouad Yaha are both doubts as confirmed by the Dragons today.

Tomkins and McMeeken were scheduled to return to the squad after the World Cup after Christmas.
