The match takes place in the city of Perpignan, in the department of Pyrenes-Orientales, which is in the middle of the French traditional heartlands of the sport.
The city is the prefecture of the region and features a mix of traditional small streets lined with cafes, historic building and modern areas including large office blocks and even an international airport.
It is also just a few kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea and as you would likely expect from the name of the club, it is in the Catalan region that crossed the nearby border in the Spain and includes the mountainous country of Andorra and the Balearic Islands.
This is a match up between two clubs who have very distinct styles of play, with the Tigers traditionally been designed around free flowing rugby and the Dragons game been built upon a huge forward pack.
That mix of styles often leads to incredible games, with some of the highest scoring matches coming in games between the two sides in France.
