Catalan Dragons could leapfrog Warrington Wolves in the Stobart Super League table with a win in Monday's live game on Sky Sports 1 HD.

Both teams have enjoyed positive starts to the campaign with the Dragons seeing off the London Broncos on Thursday while Tony Smith's Wolves came from 12-0 down to beat Widnes.

Warrington have 15 points from their opening 10 games, leaving them just behind current leaders Huddersfield at the summit.

Catalan coach Trent Robinson brings back forwards David Ferriol, Eloi Pelissier and Jason Baitieri after resting them for the win at London.

Teenage winger Damien Cardace, who scored four tries in their recent 76-6 win over Widnes, could make his second appearance in place of Damien Blanch, who broke a hand at the Twickenham Stoop.

Quartet recalled

Warrington recall skipper Adrian Morley, Simon Grix, Lee Briers and Trent Waterhouse after they were all rested against Widnes.

Hooker Michael Monaghan remains sidelined with a knee injury so youngster Brad Dwyer keeps his place in the 19-man squad.

Wolves' Player of the year looks to have paid the price for completing a full 80 minutes against Wigan and a large part of the defeat to St Helens at the Halliwell Jones Stadium just weeks after undergoing surgery to fix cartilage problems in both knees.

"Out of the players I rested, Michael Monaghan is unlikely for Monday because his knees have flared up a little bit," explained Smith.

"He is not looking like a long term injury, but he is in need of the rest."

Catalan Dragons: Greenshields, Pryce, Sa, Bosc, Dureau, Ferriol, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Anderson, Mounis, Pelissier, Millard, Simon, Fakir, Paea, Baitieri, Duport, Cardace.

Warrington: Blythe, C. Bridge, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Dwyer, Grix, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, McCarthy, J. Monaghan, Morley, Myler, O'Brien, Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.
