Catalans Dragons celebrate winning the 2018 Challenge Cup

Catalans Dragons will defend the Challenge Cup this year after settling their dispute with the Rugby Football League.

The French club made history last August by becoming the first overseas team to win the famous knockout trophy, but their participation this year was thrown into some doubt when they refused to pay a £500,000 bond.

The RFL is keen to avoid another financial hit after last year’s final at Wembley was watched by just 50,672 fans, but it has now confirmed it has reached an agreement with Catalans.
