Catalan head coach Laurent Frayssinous has made three changes to his matchday squad, with long-term absentees Frederic Vaccari and Scott Dureau making welcome returns having recovered from their respective injures.
The other incoming Dragons player is former Brisbane forward Benjamin Garcia, who is still to make his debut for the club.
Catalan 19-man squad: Webb, Blanch, Pryce, Bosc, Dureau, Elima, Henderson, Menzies, Mounis, Maria, Pelissier, Larroyer, Bousquet, Fakir, Paea, Duport, Vaccari, Whitehead, Garcia.
Wigan 19-man squad: Burke, Charnley, Crosby, Dudson, Farrell, Flower, Gelling, Green, Hansen, Hughes, McIlorum, Mossop, Richards, Smith, Taylor, Thornley, L. Tomkins, S. Tomkins, Tuson.
Prediction: Wigan are in poor form and a trip to France is not what they needed just a week before Wembley. Home win.
Wigan have won their last five meetings with Catalan – with the French outfit’s last victory against the Warriors coming 20-12 at Montpellier on 4 June, 2011.
