St Helens to charter flight for Catalans trip

St Helens coach Keiron Cunningham has revealed that his team are going to take a similar approach to Leeds Rhinos this weekend – and try and attempt the trip to Catalans in a single day.

The Rhinos have recently chartered a flight when going out to face the Dragons in Perpignan – meaning they can fly in and out in the same day, something the club believe is beneficial.

And Cunningham says that ahead of this weekend’s Super 8s opener in Perpignan, he wants his team to do the same so they aren’t over there for several days with a busy schedule coming up.

“We’re going to try and tackle it in a day,” he revealed.

“We’re going to charter a plane, go over on the Saturday and do it in a day. I don’t really like the idea of my players sat around in the sun for three or four days then going playing a game of rugby. We’ll try it and see how it goes.”
