Next year Catalans will be even stronger with the addition of Samuel Tomkins. This raises the spectre of Catalans winning the Grand Final at Old Trafford in 2019, and maybe even winning the Challenge Cup at Wembley two years in a row.

Of course I am aware that Les Catalans Dragons will face strong challenges from other clubs, but Benjamin Barba will leave St Helens and return to the NRL, while Wigan will lose Samuel Tomkins, John Bateman and others, and Jake Webster is leaving Castleford. So the tide is turning towards Les Catalans Dragons and at least there is the possibility of a dazzling double for France.

They could go back to back with cup wins, happens a lot when a team wins they get s taste for the cup. Hull just won 2 on the trot, Leeds likewise before that. Warrington did 3 out of 4 and Saints did 3 in a row 06-08

It just seems to have all clicked since late May for Catalans and with the pack they have they live with anyone on any given day right now. With players to come in that will make them even stronger they have to be considered a serious threat for both comps next year.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

Nobody cares...the Cup Final attendance is a sad indictment of what Catalans actually bring to the table.
Hull FC, the City's only top flight professional club...

Yes because the last few cup finals played between two traditional RL power houses were complete sell outs and looked fantastic on tv...oh hang on.....
