Catalans ring changes for cup clash

Catalans coach Laurent Frayssinous is resting six key players, including Todd Carney, for Sunday’s Challenge Cup sixth round clash against Featherstone.

Carney’s half-back partner Scott Dureau, hooker Ian Henderson, the in-form Ben Garcia, Zeb Taia and Jason Baitieri have all been given the weekend off.

Vincent Duport and Ben Pomeroy both miss out through injury.
