Preview: Toulouse v Sheffield

William Barthau and Tony Gigot are in line for their Olympique debuts after joining the club on dual-registration deals from Catalans Dragons.

However, Constant Villegas (knee) and former Leeds star Simon Worrall (shoulder) are both ruled out for the rest of the season. Andrei Olari (knee) is also unavailable this weekend.

Second-rower Maxime Herold could be included after joining from Limoux, with Toulouse coach Gilles Dumas knowing his side are likely to need a victory to remain in the Co-operative Championship play-off places.

Dane McDonald (shoulder) could return for the Eagles, but mystery surrounds the future of Eagles half-back Aaron Groom after he made himself unavailable for last week’s win at Batley.

Coach Mark Aston has admitted he may be forced to bring some fresh faces into his squad as the Eagles battle for a top-six spot.
“We are always looking at who might be available to come in,” he said. “I can still fetch people on loan or on a contract.”

Simon Brown could play on Saturday after joining from South Yorkshire rivals Doncaster.
