Captain Greg Mounis and last season’s leading try scorer Damien Blanch return to the Catalan squad for the match against Castleford on Saturday.

Head Coach Trent Robinson will, however, be without new signing Louis Anderson, who is out for up to two weeks through injury.

The Dragons are still missing Frederic Vaccari, Cyril Stacul and Eloi Pelissier, also through injury.

Kick-off for the match has been brought forward to 3.30pm, as Catalan play their first Super League home game of the season, after last Saturday’s clash against Hull was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Catalan 19-man squad: Greenshields, Blanch, Pryce, Sa, Bosc, Dureau, Ferriol, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Mounis, Raguin, Baile, Millard, Fakir, Paea, Baitieri, Duport, Fisher.

Castleford 19-man squad: Owen, Arundel, Dixon, Griffin, Chase, Orr, Emmitt, Clark, Ferres, Walker, Snitch, Jones, Milner, Mitchell, Holmes, Massey, McGoldrick, Nash, Grehan.
