Steve McNamara and Simon Woolford have named their 19 man squads for this evening’s clash at Stade Gilbert Brutus, with both sides looking to get their first win of the Super League campaign.
Catalans Dragons boss Steve McNamara has made one change to his extended squad after their round one loss to Castleford, with David Mead dropping out of the side for family reasons and is replaced by youngster Arthur Romano.
The Challenge Cup holders are still without Greg Bird and Jodie Broughton through injury.
Simon Woolford has welcomed back experienced campaigner Aaron Murphy to the squad from injury, with round one man of the match Izaac Farrell retaining his spot, but powerhouse forward Akuma Ta’ai drops out due to an ongoing delay with his visa.
The Giants are still without influential duo Jermaine McGillvary and Leroy Cudjoe for the trip to France.
