Super League side to put up temporary stands ahead of huge fixture

This weekend we are set to see some huge games as Warrington Wolves and Hull FC collide in a huge game in the fight for the play-offs, Wigan Warriors face the French League Leaders in a massive match and Leeds Rhinos head over to Huddersfield Giants where a record crowd is expected.

But it is hard to get away from the clash between Wigan and Catalans Dragons in Perpignan when considering the biggest game of the round.

It is a clash between the top two and two teams dreaming of Grand Final glory come the end of the year.

It is set to attract a massive crowd with Catalans evening erecting two temporary stands to fit in extra supporters to meet the demand.

Could the game be the Grand Final in waiting?

Speaking on The Last Tackle, Kyle Amor has had his say: “That’s been perfect for Catalan. If I’m a Catalan player sitting in that room, I’m going, this is gold because nobody’s talking about us, nobody’s putting expectation on us.

“There’s really no pressure. I just think that their playing roster is fantastic and look, again, I think they go on, I don’t think they dropped in form and I think they win the League Leaders Shield, but the playoffs, there’s teams within that playoffs who just know how to get it right.

“Catalan showed us a couple of years back the 2021 grand final against Saints, that game went right to the wire, it really did and thankfully for our side it was us that lifted the trophy. But, is this the year of the dragon? I don’t know.”

He does think St Helens could again be the side to lift the Super League trophy: “I still think that St Helens, get them into the playoffs, they have the squad. Every team in the competition would be frightened to play St Helens.

“I think if they get all the players right and the key personnel right, they have a chance to pull out that World Club Challenge performance again, which is probably the greatest performance in the club’s history.

“I think they’re quietly starting to, I think they’ve put four wins together in a row now, and they’re going to sort of head towards the back end of this season with a little bit of momentum behind them.”
