A Super League stadium has suffered “major water damage” prompting the closure of the club shop and other areas of the ground today as steps are taken to deal with the situation.
The club in question is the Catalans Dragons and their Stade Gilbert Brutus stadium which is home to one of the best atmospheres in Super League.
The club released the following statement on Twitter: “Following major water damage, the administrative department and shop will be closed today.”
The club have plenty of time until their next Super League game to resolve the issue due to the international break in which we could see plenty of their stars not just for France but the likes of Mike McMeeken and Tom Johnstone could be set to feature for Shaun Wane’s England side especially with reports that 14 players have withdrawn from the squad.
McMeeken is the only surviving Dragons player from the World Cup to feature after Sam Tomkins’ retirement announcement has seen him play his last game for England and Michael McIlorum, who was hit with a ban yesterday, has been left out of the squad with Andy Ackers set to replace him as the number nine.
Last night the Dragons were drawn against Warrington Wolves in the Challenge Cup in perhaps the second biggest tie of the round.
They will want to avenge their defeat in the fiery clash over Easter.
