Menzies among Catalan absentees

James Gordon

Catalan host Salford on Saturday without veteran Steve Menzies and four other first team regulars.

Menzies has still not recovered from a dead leg, while Clint Greenshields, Ian Henderson and Louis Anderson all picked up knocks at Wigan last week which will keep them out of the game.

Setaimata Sa will also miss the game after being handed a two-match ban by the RFL Disciplinary Committee earlier this week.

There is a first appearance of the season for Mickael Simon, while two youngsters Julian Bousquet and Damien Cardace are called up in to the first team squad, which also includes Ben Fisher and Cyrille Gossard, who were missing last weekend.

Catalan 19-man squad v Salford: Blanch, Pryce, Bosc, Dureau, Ferriol, Casty, Mounis, Raguin, Baile, Gossard, Millard, Simon, Bousquet, Fakir, Paea, Baitieri, Duport, Fisher, Cardace.
