Danny Richardson is set to return for St Helens on Saturday, while Catalans will be without Kenny Edwards.

Steve McNamara has made just one change to his Dragons outfit that were hammered at Wigan Warriors last week. Benjamin Jullien comes in for the injured Edwards.

Alrix Da Costa and Arthur Romano could feature for Catalans after not making the final matchday 17-man squad last Sunday.

St Helens coach Justin Holbrook has made two changes to his side that beat Hull Kingston Rovers last time out. Richardson and Jack Welsby replace Theo Fages (hip) and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, whose partner has recently given birth.

Mark Percival, Alex Walmsley, Zeb Taia and James Roby are set to come back for Saints in France.

The televised Super League match takes place at the Stade Gilbert Brutus on Saturday, 5pm kick-off.
