Super League preview: Catalan v Leeds

Under-strength Catalan will be hoping home advantage can see them upset Leeds.

Head coach Laurent Frayssinous is without Olivier Elima and Julian Bousquet through suspension, whilst Vincent Duport, Scott Dureau, Damien Cardace and Ben Pomeroy are injured – with the latter still to make his Super League debut.

Mickael Simon, Jean-Philippe Baile and Frédéric Vaccari have been called up to the squad, and are all set to play their first game this season.

The Rhinos meanwhile make one change, as Liam Sutcliffe comes in for Mitch Achurch.

They have also had Kevin Sinfield passed fit, a man who has scored points in all 19 of his side’s meetings with the Dragons since 2006.
