Winless Catalan will be hoping history is on their side when they visit early pace-setters St Helens.
The Dragons have won on both of their previous trips to Langtree Park, with Saints’ last home victory over the French side coming at Knowsley Road in 2011.
Apart from that there is not much promise for head coach Laurent Frayssinous, who is without 11 players due to injury or suspension.
Head coach Nathan Brown has no such problems, although he does bring prop Anthony Walker into his squad.
Saints favourite Paul Wellens will be making his 500th appearance if he features.
Squad: Lomax, Makinson, Turner, Jones, Hohaia, Walsh, Masoe, Roby, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Soliola, Wilkin, Manu, Laffranchi, Richards, Amor, Wellens, Walmsley, Swift, Walker.
Last match: Won 38-18 at home to Hull KR
Squad: Escaré, Pryce, Oldfield, Bosc, Lima, Taia, Mounis, Barthau, Pelissier, Whitehead, Pala, Simon, Paea, Baitieri, Baile, Vaccari, Garcia, Springer, Scimone.
Last match: Lost 56-14 away at Wakefield
