Leon Pryce will make his first appearance in Catalan colours at stand-off on Saturday, when the Dragons take on Wakefield in Jerome Guisset‘s testimonial.
Coach Trent Robinson is without winger Damien Blanch, centre Jean-Philippe Baile and veteran back-rower Steve Menzies, with Thomas Bosc slotting in at full back and Clint Greenshields switching to the wing.
Pryce will start at half-back alongside Scott Dureau, while there will also be a debut for fellow new signing Louis Anderson, who joined from Warrington in the close season.
Robinson will also call up upon home-grown pair Mathias Pala and William Barthau, who spent time on loan at Dewsbury last season.
