Catalans have announced the closure of club offices until further notice, in response to the latest French government guidelines.

The Dragons saw their clash with Leeds, scheduled for Saturday, postponed after a Rhinos player displayed symptoms of Coronavirus.

And as the RFL and Super League consider the broader immediate future of the sport in the UK in the wake of the outbreak, the Dragons have decided to close their doors.

The decision follows Remi Casty’s announcement earlier today that he has removed himself from training and playing duties, and Toulouse’s own call to shut up shop.

“The club has decided to close the offices until further notice.”
