If you look at the 27 man squad named for the Catalans for 2016, 17 of the players are French, so this years squad is more 'French' than the average.
This whole thread is based upon the team named for one game, a game where the coach decided to name the 10 non-French players in his squad.
There's 20 odd professional French players floating about SL thanks to France's one pro club.
If all the other SL clubs could do this it would be great, but sadly Widnes. Wakefield, HKR & Salford struggle.
Probably no coincidence they were the bottom four in SL and overwhelmingly tipped to be so this season.
Like Leeds, Catalans produce the young players then keep the very best and those who can't make the team can go play for another SL clubs as they do.
