Super League heads to France for Thursday’s second game, with Catalans, searching for a fourth straight win in the League, hosting a rejuvenated Hull FC side having won three of their last four games.
The Dragons have named the same 21-man squad that was due to play Wigan last time out with no fresh injury concerns. Samisoni Langi and Remi Casty remain sidelined.
The Airlie Birds make two changes from Sunday’s win against Castleford with Scott Taylor and Ben McNamara, son of Catalans’ coach Steve, replacing injured duo Jamie Shaul and Albert Kelly.
This is a big game for the Dragons. Catalans currently sit fourth and would move above Warrington into third with a win in Perpignan on Thursday night. Hull are starting to find their feet under Andy Last, easing past Castleford on Sunday, but might struggle against an in-form Catalans’ side who should claim their second win of the season against the Airlie Birds.
