Cancelled flight hampers Salford preparations

The Easter weekend is tough on all teams, but Salford have been dealt the worst hand this season.

Having beaten Leigh 12-6 on Good Friday, the Red Devils travel to Perpignan to face Catalans Dragons on Monday.

Their preparations have been hampered further by the cancellation of their original flight on Saturday, which now means they won’t fly to the south of France until Sunday night.

Coach Ian Watson said: “We won’t get there until Sunday night now, but it’s just something we’ve got to deal with.

“We’ll focus on what we can do during the game.

“They’ll be in the same position as we are with the niggles and knocks from their game.”

Catalans have enjoyed an extra two days off, with their game against Huddersfield being played on Wednesday.

Their coach Laurent Frayssinous joked after they won at the John Smith’s Stadium that maybe they should play more games in England, having won three on the road this campaign.

The Dragons only win at home this season came against Warrington in round one.
