Catalans “doing everything they can” to get to Warrington after flight detour

Catalans are racing against time to get to England for Friday evening’s Betfred Super League match at Warrington.

The team were unable to board their charter flight in Perpignan because of the Tramontana, a fierce wind that regularly causes disruption around the Mediterranean area.

That forced the plane to divert to Toulouse, a two-and-a-half-hour drive away, and the players were making their own way to meet it.

“The wind was horrendous and the plane couldn’t land,” McNamara told the PA news agency.

“We’re now at the club and jumping in our cars, trying to get to Toulouse though the storm.

“Hopefully we’ll get there. We’re doing everything we can.”

The Dragons’ match against the Wolves is due to kick off at 6pm at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
