The Challenge Cup returns at the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield this weekend as Catalans and Wakefield battle it out for a place in the quarter-finals.

Steve McNamara will be without Sam Tomkins and Sam Moa through suspension whilst Samisoni Langi and Julian Bousquet are both injured.

Chris Chester has recalled Alex Walker, Max Jowitt, James Batchelor and Connor Bailey into his 21-man squad, with Innes Senior in line to make his debut after signing on loan from Huddersfield Giants in the week.


Catalans Dragons: Mead, Folau, Yaha, Maloney, Drinkwater, Casty, McIlorum, Whitley, J. Tomkins, Garcia, Davies, Jullien, Da Costa, Goudemand, Seguier, Romano, Maria, Baitieri, Mourgue, Belmas, Kasiano

Wakefield Trinity: Walker, Tupou, Miller, Fifita, Wood, Arona, Ashurst, Kirmond, Westerman, Pitts, Kopczak, Batchelor, Tangata, Crowther, Jowitt, Croft, Hampshire, Bailey, Tanginoa, Navarrete, Senior


The two teams met in Super League last week with the Dragons claiming an emphatic 58-point success. Therefore, it will be difficult for Trinity to bridge that chasm in the space of just seven days, however, I’m expecting a closer game on Saturday. Whilst Catalans are known for being inconsistent, they should be comfortable winners in this one.
