Taia Expecting Catalan Response

Zeb Taia knows his former Catalan teammates well and he’s expecting a response from them this weekend.

The Dragons were soundly beaten by Widnes in their first game of the season and now host a Saints side that got their season off to a flyer against Castleford.

“I went over to Widnes and watched their game,” he said. “It was a tough first hit out. I’m sure they will be ready to go this week. No one wants to start off a season like that and I’m sure those boys will be ready. It will be a tough game for us.

“It can be hostile for away teams going there; I know confidence is high in the group over there too when they play at home.

“We have to worry about ourselves, preparing well and doing what we can to come away with the victory.”

He continued: “We went in and out in a day last year and got the win towards the end of the game. It can be tough to do that, but it is a mental thing. We can’t dwell on it and make excuses.

“We will be tuned in to get there, get the job done and come home.”

Tickets for seven of Saints’ Betfred Super League fixtures are now on sale from the Ticket Office at the Totally Wicked Stadium, by calling 01744 455052 or online here.
