Remi Casty refuses to travel to Wigan or even train for this weekend’s match

CATALANS captain Remi Casty refuses to even train for Sunday’s away clash with Wigan in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking in the Independent newspaper, Casty said: “I’m not sick, I’m not afraid to be sick either but I don’t want to catch this virus and pass it on to someone more fragile.
“You have to be responsible for your actions. This isn’t just a flu, we’ve never had a health crisis of this magnitude.”
Asked if he would train with his team-mates on Monday, he answered: “No. I’ve just told my team-mates and the staff that I won’t be there for training. I’ve made that decision and I’m gonna stick with it.
“(British officials) said that as long as there was no case in a player, the championship was maintained. Afterwards, they’re on an island, maybe they feel more protected than us or superior.
“I get the impression they’re adopting a different strategy, hoping the virus will spread faster than in France. This is only my opinion, compared to what I read or see.
“The club from Leeds that did not move to Perpignan risks a sanction (Leeds refused to travel to Perpignan last weekend).
“I won’t find it normal that the RFL sanction them. Even if their player didn’t contract the virus, they had an intelligent reaction. It’s commendable of them, and they wanted to avoid spreading it.
“I understand the position of the coach (Steve McNamara) who has a match to prepare and win (this week). But we are in France and the situation is not to be taken lightly.”
