Percival expects tough game

Mark Percival is expecting a physical game when Catalan come to the Totally Wicked Stadium this Sunday.

Saints play the Dragons following a 19-12 home victory over Hull FC last Friday night, which leaves them just four points off a semi-final spot.

Percival said: “Everyone is saying we should beat Catalan on Sunday but they have a quality team. They are a tough side who play a physical game so we will have to bring that to the match.

“They also have a new boss who seems to have tidied their game up. Although results haven’t gone their way in the last couple of weeks in the majority of these games they have been in those contests.”

Mark bagged a brace and three goals in a great performance on Friday but knows a team effort is required to beat the Dragons.

“We need to think of doing the basics right and that should hopefully give us the win,” he added. “The way the table is, every point matters, we can’t have a week off and think we’ll get the win next week.

“We need every point in the game and I’m hoping we can take the two in the game on Friday.”

Tickets for the clash, which kicks off at 3pm on Sunday July 16, are on sale from the Ticket Office, by calling 01744 455 052 or online here.
