The Vikings travel to Perpignan without the ex-Wigan pair through suspension and injury respectively, for only the third ever meeting between the two sides.
They suffered a club record defeat in the same fixture last season, going down 76-6.
Catalan 19-man squad: Blanch, Pryce, Taia, Bosc, Elima, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Anderson, Mounis, Barthau, Pelissier, Larroyer, Millard, Pala, Simon, Bousquet, Fakir, Baitieri.
Widnes 19-man squad: Ah Van, Allen, Briscoe, Clarke, Cross, Davies, Dean, Flynn, Gerrard, Gore, Hanbury, Isa, Joseph, Kavanagh, Leuluai, Mellor, O’Carroll, White, Winterstein.
Prediction: Will be a lot closer than last year, but expect the Dragons to prevail – home win.
