  • Catalans looked poor in attack as they failed to win away from home against Wakefield last week and now face the unbeaten Warrington in what looks like a tough fixture as the Dragons aim to kick-start their season.

  • The Dragons will look to bring Fouad Yaha into their side following his re-signing with the club and will replace the injured David Mead who is out for the next two months with an adductor tendon injury.

  • Ben Garcia is also out for the French outfit but Catalans are boosted by the return of prop Julian Bousquet after he missed out against Wakefield whilst Lucas Albert also receives a call-up.

WARRINGTON WOLVES

Head Coach: Steve Price

Squad: Atkins, Austin, Charnley, D. Clark, J. Clark, Cooper, Goodwin, Hill, Hughes, King, Lineham, Mamo, Murdoch-Masila, Patton, Philbin, Ratchford, Tasi, Walker, Westwood

Unavailable: Kevin Brown, Ben Currie

  • Warrington maintained their 100% start to the year as they were comfortable winners over Huddersfield although they did switch off late on and head coach Steve Price will be keen to ensure that doesn’t happen again this week.

  • The Wolves handed Jake Mamo a debut from the bench against his former club last week but he may be dropped in favour of hooker Danny Walker who could return having made way against the Giants.

  • Veteran forward Ben Westwood is back for Warrington this week having served his two-match ban with Harvey Livett the man to make way from the 19 with Westwood set to slot straight back into the side.

THE PREDICTION

Catalans' struggles on the road look set to continue this season and will need to rely on their home form to allow them to challenge at the top of the table. Hosting unbeaten Warrington will be a big test for them but it could be a long night if they don’t show make serious improvements on last week’s effort. The Wolves have shown glimpses of the threat they will pose this year but have yet to fully show what they can do and if they do click here, they could run out big winners.
