Preview: Toulouse v Dewsbury

Toulouse head coach Gilles Dumas has set his sights on a top six finish in this year’s Co-operative Championship.

Toulouse begin their second season in the competition with a home fixture against newly promoted Dewsbury on Saturday.

Dumas said: “Last year we were heading for the play-offs until about five days from the end.

“We let too many matches get away from us in the last few minutes and missed too many bonus points.”

Luke Menzies (back) is struggling to be fit for Warren Jowitt’s Dewsbury side.

Jowitt said: “We could have done without the little blip against Halifax but things have gone pretty well for us.

“We’re where we want to be at this moment in time but there’s still a lot of improvement in us and we’ll have to learn and adapt for the Co-operative Championship. It’s a lot quicker and you’re playing against a better calibre of player.

“Having said that, I put a team together last year that I thought would be able to compete in this division – now we’ve just got to get into the swing of it.”
