The context

The Dragons take on St Helens in the Super League Grand Final on Saturday, October 9, kick-off at 7.00pm CEST at Old Trafford.

After a perfectly controlled semi-final last week in an tremendous atmosphere at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium, Steve McNamara's men are now 80 minutes away from a first Super League title. The Catalans, Super League leaders at the end of the regular season with 19 wins in 22 league games, will play at Manchester United's iconic stadium for the first time with the objective of bringing the trophy to the south of France.

The Catalans will have to face two-time defending Super League champions St Helens, who have won the competition eight times in their history. The Saints will be keen to secure a third consecutive win, which would be a first for the club, who also won the Challenge Cup earlier this season at Wembley.
