Anderson, 28, has been granted leave until February 1st by the Dragons, meaning he will miss two friendlies, but he should be back before the start of the Super League season.
Catalan CEO Christophe Jouffret made the following statement:
“Louis asked us to go back to his native country to be close to his family for personal reasons. We granted him this favour, and gave him the green light to leave the club for a month.
“Louis should be back early February, but will follow a personal training program during his stay near Auckland. The whole club wishes Louis courage, and hopes he will be back as soon as possible.”
Meanwhile, the Dragons have appointed Frédéric Marcerou as the Head of Strength and Conditioning, replacing the outgoing Adam Trypas.
Marcerou will be assisted by former Pia head coach Benoît Albert.
