Eagles aim for three out of three

In form Eagles are looking to make it three wins on the bounce after beating Whitehaven and Batley in their last two fixtures.

Mark Aston’s men beat Whitehaven 64-24 and then edged past Batley 22-12 in Wednesday’s midweek fixture.

Jack Howieson (bicep) and Jonny Woodcock (knee) are definitely out for the Eagles while Aston will check over his other players in the next 24 hours before finalising his squad to take on the Frenchmen.

Constant Villegas and Roman Mencarini are included in the Toulouse squad after recovering from thigh injuries. Jerome Gout (wrist) and Simon Worrall (shoulder) are both ruled out.

Olympique coach Gilles Dumas is aiming to strengthen his side’s grip on a place in the top six of the Co-operative Championship.

And there is no shortage of confidence after the French club’s 26-24 victory at Featherstone last week.

Dumas said: “I felt that if we stuck at Rovers, then the result would come. We had a good first half and if we built on that then we were in with a chance.

“We persisted, and it was a big win for us against the best team in the competition.”
