CATALAN v WOLVES: Louis Anderson: I'm backing Les Catalans to win tonight
WARRINGTON Guardian met up with Louis Anderson this morning for an exclusive interview.
The former New Zealand international back rower, who will always have legendary status at Wolves on the back of helping the club to win historical back-to-back Challenge Cup Finals in 2009 and 2010, is currently sidelined with an Achilles' tendon tear.
But he is in good spirits, enjoying life in the south of France and still sharing family life with his brother Vinnie - another ex-Wolves Wembley winner of course - who has recently signed an extended two-year deal with French league club Carcassonne, a club about an hour away from Perpignan.
Louis, who will also have to sit out the World Cup this autumn due to the injury after having put his hand up to represent Tonga, said: "My current team is playing my old team and I have special memories at Warrington but I'm backing Catalan tonight, for sure."
And he feels his teammates will have a special incentive with it being a farewell night for skipper Remi Casty, who is joining Sydney Roosters in the NRL, and rugby league legend Steve Menzies, who is retiring.
"I'm sure the boys who take the field tonight will want to send them off on a good note, with this being our last league game at home this season."
He added: I'm grateful to have played alongside both men. I played against Beever (Menzies) in the NRL and now with him - it's something I'll remember forever.
"As for Remy, he's been here since the early days of the club. He's such a hard trainer and hard worker."
* We will publish the full interview with Louis later, with the New Zealander talking all about his life in the south of France and the special memories he has from his time with Wolves.
