Casty not renewed by Catalans


Recommended Posts

Emblematic Rémi Casty hoped to secure a final one year deal with Catalans to bow out. 

It has now been said Catalans did not offer any contract, leaving the once captain free without a chance to bow out at the stadium in front of his fans after 14 seasons at the house.

Definitely.  French players want to pass the ball and run from deep. None of that fits into the current game plan.  Look at Escare and Gigot, both could probably get in the current side but

FFS. How does a Remi Casty thread get derailed into P&R?  

In typical british fashion you don’t allow a period of stability to materialise because your management get bored and have to be “innovative”. As soon as Richard Lewis left the RFL appointed a numpty

Kasiano is going to cost more money this year as Melbourne wont be paying some of his wages. 2 English lads signed plus folau, and all before covid happened. Hopefully they'll get help from the french  government or we could see the end of the Dragons. They where in a good financial position before covid hit. The jets to England to finish the season, no fans and sponsors going bust haven't helped the situation!

600 00 a season for 20 games at 15 min per game. What a bargain Kasiano is!

He’ll be 36 by the start of the season, I can see why they might want to go in a different direction. Shame he’s not had the farewell he deserves but there’s a long list of people this year who haven’t either. 

I read on social media (albeit with the help if google translate) that he apparently first  found out about it by reading it in the press. That is horrible if true. I don't think he was expecting a tickertape parade, jist a bit if basic human decency.

More alarming than this too, you can now actually count on one hand the amount of Frenchmen in the Catalans team.

Casty, maria, simon three french props leaving, moa too, albert gone, talk that morgue is looking to move to England, baitieri in negotiations but nothing promised, lots of props and french players leaving, belmas and Romano also in discussions. 

I reckon the casty thing could fully turn the fans against McNamara as they where getting annoyed by the way he's treating the french players and young French players, goudemand and julien didn't play for the last part of the season, segieur sat on the bench and didn't get on which has happened twice to him, twice to lucas albert and to morgue also i think. He upset the fans when smith was getting picked every week even though he was playing on one leg and at half pace. 

Maria just trained and simon was forgotten about until the last game of the season, yaha didn't feature as soon as the injured players came back. Gigot left, etc etc

I admire all the good things that BG has done over the years however the 2 bad points.

1/Personal local vendettas which meant that Theo Fages was never signed (Same goes for Maxime Greseque and others)

2/Changing the overseas recruitment policy from Aussies/Kiwis to English players.

 

The continued non use of French players for me is disappointing to say the least.

Be interesting  to see how 4 young French props go with the Dragons reserves in the coming months. Joe Chan, Mathieu Cozza, Hugo Salabio and Florian Vailhen. There's been a shake-up with St Esteve this year with Justin Murphys' arrival. Lets see how it works out.

Good man Justin nice to see him back (Didn't he marry a local girl ?) if one has long term involvement as an overseas player it always seems to be the Aussies and Kiwis that settle.

There is an ex Penrith Panthers player who has/had a bar in Iles Sur Tet played for x111Catalan  back in the early 1990,s dont know if you ever have come across him married a local girl.

The French players still on contract from the top of my head are, goudemand, da costa, seguier, julien, yaha, bousquet and García. 

Only 7 so they better sign another 8 at least thats a poor showing.

As I keep saying MIck Potter and Trent Robinson have been the only 2 coaches that really did give French players a good shot at it.

The entire recruitment policy at the dragons needs to change drastically from the head coach downwards.

I want French sides in SL but if we are simply getting reductions in French players then I do start to wonder whether minimum quotas should be enforced.

I agree SB but it would only work for now under licensing.

This whole thing should have been thought through much better originally.

Why didn’t we get complaints of French players not being in the team when Fraysinnous was coach?  He had 17 French in the squad compared to Robinson and Potter who had 18.  Robbo or Potter might have had 19 as this is from memory.

Only Robbo got anywhere near, 4th I think, McNamara won the CC.  What would Bernard prefer?
