Catalans re-new TV contract with Bein Sport

For three years up until 2017. No mention of money so far. Rather anticipated this as the RFL had already indicated that Sky would cover all the Dragons home games in 2015 as they did last year. How this leaves Toulouse's and their Championship aspirations for 2016 who knows.

Looked pretty impressive against Carcassonne Sunday. Big lad who can play centre or backrow is in the Aude Cathares selection to play the Dragons next month. With 100 Queensland Cup games under his belt for Redcliffe Dolphins sounds great catch for the new League 1 club. Born of Dutch parents he will join Midlands club when his season in France is concluded.

Club press conference at Brutus this morning to welcome new coaching assistant Michael Monaghan & the returning Remi Casty. Think they're pleased about picking up the former Warrington half back/hooker in the knowledge of some one who has only just retired. To many the front row didn't quite have the edge in 2014. Having Casty back could well remedy that.


The playing squad come together for the first time next Monday. The French international players & Elliott Whitehead exempt till next month. Also the club have cut the first team squad to just 23 for the new campaign - may be the new impending U19s Academy has some thing to do with that. The supporters clubs invited to share a breakfast with players and coaching staff followed by first run out and press conference to officially announce the arrival of Todd Carney. The other major recruit Willie Tonga arrived last week and performed the celebrity kick off along side Monaghan at St Esteve Sunday for the reserve team game. The new coach was a Canberra player which may well help Carney settle in along with Ben Pomeroy who played with the half back at Cronulla.


Elsewhere hear that the Federation President Carlos Zalduendo is part of a government delegation travelling with President Francois Hollande to Sydney and Canberra next week. Some recognition or what!

France's great wanderer continues it seems. May be he just likes Lowerhouse Lane. Didn't Crusaders his last club train there. Plenty of folk have recognised his qualities and why they still believe he can offer something. Still on the right side thirty too. Denis believes may be!
