Former Warrington favourite Richie Myler is warning his Catalans Dragons team-mates to expect their toughest test yet as they seek to put together a three-match winning run for the first time for 18 months at the expense of his old club. Bruno Caboclo Jersey . The Perpignan club kick-started their Super League campaign with back-to-back wins over Leeds and Wakefield but on Saturday face a Warrington side who have won all four games so far in their best start to a season for seven years.We havent hit our straps yet, said Myler, who joined the Dragons from Warrington at the end of last season. Were not putting 80-minute performances in. I think we showed what we are capable of last week and weve got to build on that now but we know it will be tough against Warrington.Theyve started the season really well. They obviously recruited well in the off season and theyve got a good set-up there, obviously I was part of it.Myler, who made 131 Super League appearances for the Wolves after joining them from Salford in 2010, is relishing playing behind one of the biggest packs in the competition.The arrival of 19st heavyweight Dave Taylor, the man nicknamed Coal Train, and 6ft 5in Willie Mason has increased the size of the Dragons pack this year and they have been boosted by the return of French Test front-rower Remi Casty from a knee reconstruction.Australian stand-off Todd Carney is set to play five games in a row for the first time after an injury-hit first season in Super League and Myler is excited by his partnership with the 2010 international player of the year. Myler made 131 appearances for Warrington He was hampered a lot by injury last year but hes fit now and a key member of this team, said Myler.Hes a massive player and I think he showed that against Wakefield, where he had a hand in most of the tries.We have got a big pack and it gets bigger now weve got Mason and Remi is back. Its handy. Thats what all half-backs want, a decent-sized pack to look after you. Theres some great players in the team.It was a bit of a tough season for me last year but its a nice fresh start and a new challenge and Im really enjoying it. Great start for Sandow Can Chris Sandow lead Warrington to Grand Final glory? Warrington coach Tony Smith is able to recall Kurt Gidley after he missed the win at Salford through concussion to renew his thriving partnership with fellow Australian Chris Sandow and he is looking forward to the battle of the half-backs.I thought Rich probably had his strongest game for a long time against Wakefield last week, said Smith. Carney and he combined well together.Weve got two experienced halves that are playing well together so it should be a good battle.It will come down to the forwards to see which team gets on the front foot so those half-backs can probably get the edge. Chris Sandows late drop goal against Salford maintained Warringtons 100 per cent start Although they have won all their games so far, Smith says his side will need to find some improvement if they are to keep the run going and says they will need to be at their best in front of a partisan French crowd.We havent quite hit our straps yet, even though weve a lot of Ws next to our name, he said.Last week I thought defensively we werent great but our attack was pretty good. We need to put the whole lot together in one day.And this time weve got to play the whistling crowd. Often you get a whistle from the crowd and then you get a whistle from the referee. Catalans were 42-28 victors at Wakefield last Sunday Thats the home advantage that they have. It means youve got to be squeaky clean on all your passes, youve got to be onside and youre not going to hold the opposition down for very long because the whistles keep coming.Weve got to be good enough to overcome all those things.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Organizers of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, have set up a virtual-reality ski simulator -- complete with fake, blowing snow -- on Copacabana Beach.Having sun and sand is normal here, but not snow, said local Danieli Evangelista, stepping off the make-believe ski slope after waiting in line for 30 minutes for a taste of winter during the Summer Olympics. Hardly anyone here ever sees snow. Its very cool, a very real effect.Its also about to get very real for the next hosts of the Olympic Games.Were not ready to go today, but were getting ready, Kim Jaeyoul, vice president of the Pyeongchang organizing committee, told The Associated Press.South Koreas games will be the first of three straight in Asia, joining the Tokyo Summer Games in 2020 and the Beijing Winter Games in 2022. These come after a run of difficult games in Sochi, Russia, and now Rio de Janeiro, with the International Olympic Committee looking for a safe pair of hands, as Tokyo labeled its winning bid three years ago.Yet organizers in Pyeongchang have struggled with construction delays, local conflicts over venues and a slow pace in attracting domestic sponsorship. This contrasts with the smoother run-ups to the 1988 Seoul Olympics and the 2002 World Cup that South Korea co-hosted with Japan.Unlike the 1988 Olympics and the 2002 World Cup, it was not the central government but a province that led the efforts to bring the Olympics, said Heejoon Chung, who teaches sports science at South Koreas Dong-A University. There is a sentiment that the Winter Games are more about Pyeongchang than the nation as a whole.The Pyeongchang organizing committee named Lee Hee-beom its new president three months ago. It was the second leadership change in two years, and thats worried the International Olympic Committee.Lee bowed to IOC President Thomas Bach, and then to almost 100 IOC members, before addressing the full membership just days before the Rio Olympics opened.Id like to assure you that our preparations are fully on track, Lee told them.In introducing him, Bach called Lee a very dynamic and reliable leader, and joked that he promised he will be with us until the games take place.Organizers say that after a rocky start, 90 percent of the sponsorshhip target of $760 million will be met at the end of the year. Pascal Siakam Raptors Jersey. Sponsorship will provide about one-third of the 2.2 trillion won, or $2 billion, operating budget. Kim said the budget would be adjusted in the next few weeks, compensating for inflation.Six new competition venues are about 80 percent complete, and a new high-speed rail line will be finished in June of 2017 and in operation the following January. The line will link Incheon airport to Pyeongchang and reduce travel time to 90 minutes from almost twice that much.Pyeongchang is also building a controversial sliding center for bobsled, luge and skeleton, after rejecting an IOC suggestion that it use a complex previously constructed for the games in Nagano, Japan, to save money. The cost is 124 billion won ($112 million) for a venue that could be a white elephant if not managed properly.Gunilla Lindberg, the IOC member heading the planning for Pyeongchang, said the sliding center and the International Broadcast Center are slightly delayed.Meantime, competition is heating up between South Korea and China over whose Olympic ski venue might ultimately become a destination for Asian tourists. Beijing planners have picked Zhangjiakou as the ski site for the 2022 games. Pyeongchang has some advantages, as it gets more natural snow than Zhangjiakou.A ski resort built for the Beijing Games is not going to be enough, considering the population of China, Kim said. We want to attract Chinese, but also Southeast Asians.Pyeongchang is in South Koreas Gangwon Province, and the central and provincial governments have been battling over who should pay the Olympic bills as skepticism grows about the long-term economic benefits of mega-sporting events, said Chung, the sports science professor.Pyeongchang mostly got what it wanted, Chung said, noting the province has pushed off costs to the central government. It has no choice.
