Preview

Todd Carney is set to make his Catalans debut on Saturday when the Dragons welcome Warrington to the south of France.

A series of minor injuries has seen the Australian stand-off miss the start of the season as he looks to rebuild his career in the Super League.

Carney will partner Scott Dureau in the halves who sailed over a late drop-goal to give the Dragons a narrow 13-12 win over Castleford last time out.

Warrington are unbeaten in Super League with wins over Salford and Hull FC, but the Wolves missed out on victory in their World Club Series match losing 18-12 to St George Illawarra.

Rhys Evans and Anthony England sustained injuries in the bruising encounter last Friday and miss out. Roy Asotasi is available after recovering from illness and Ben Evans also returns to the Wolves’ 19 man squad. Stefan Ratchford is still unavailable but Matty Russell could return at full-back.

Warrington have won the last six meetings between the sides; most recently a narrow 26-24 win towards the end of last season. Michael Monaghan ran the show on that day and after retiring at the end of last season is now assistant coach at the Dragons. His brother Joel will lead out the Wolves who will be aiming to maintain their 100% start to the season.
