Catalans have responded strongly to claims from Salford owner Marwan Koukash that the French club gets preferential treatment from the RFL.
Koukash questioned the worth of the Dragons to Super League yesterday, and queried the amount of foreign players in their squad.
Catalans chairman Bernard Guasch has reacted with a press statement:
“Dear Marwan,” it reads.
“We were used to better manners from the chairmen and owners from other Super League clubs.
“We are delighted of your recent arrival in our sport. As we did 10 years ago, you have brought a new impulse to the competition.
“I am available to discuss with you about how we negotiate contracts with players and their agents and our ability to fill our stadium.
“I invite you to spend few days in Perpignan to discuss this together, I’m sure a journey in the South of France will calm your anger.
“The entire Catalans Dragons club wish you, all the clubs and their fans a very enjoyable weekend at the unique and amazing event that is the Magic Weekend.”
