Table-topping Huddersfield will be hoping they won't be the latest Stobart Super League club to come a cropper in Perpignan when they take on the Catalan Dragons on Saturday.

The Giants make the trip to Stade Gilbert Brutus knowing by the time they kick off they could have been knocked off the summit, with nearest rivals Wigan playing Hull KR the previous night.

They will also know that so far in 2012 no visiting team has triumphed in France, with the Dragons winning five out of five in front of their own fans.

The last time Catalan played a home fixture they smashed Warrington 44-16, though due to Carnegie Challenge Cup commitments that was way back on April 9.

This week has seen mixed news - influential half-back Scott Dureau has signed a new contract, ending speculation about a move to Wigan, but Setaimata Sa has confirmed he is switching codes to join London Irish.

The Giants, meanwhile, welcome back a key member of their squad this weekend - but it isn't anyone who will be pulling on their boots.

Anderson returns

Assistant coach Paul Anderson has returned to Huddersfield after spending the last three weeks in Australia studying a number of NRL clubs ahead of his progression into the top job next season.

"The opportunity to go down under mid-season and observe games and preps was a great one for me," he said.

"I would like to thank Nathan Brown and the club for allowing me firstly the time and secondly for arranging so many things whilst down there for me.

"To the club I also think it was a big thing to put this forward and I am sure that we will all benefit as a whole longer term from the visit. I certainly got an awful lot of knowledge and contacts from my time away which hopefully will be of use to me and the club now and going forward."

Current head coach Nathan Brown has made four changes to his squad to face the Dragons - Jermaine McGillvary, Eorl Crabtree, Larne Patrick and captain Kevin Brown return after sitting out the cup win over Swinton.

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

Huddersfield: Grix, Lawrence, Cudjoe, McGillvary, Brown, Brough, Crabtree, Robinson, Mason, O'Donnell, Faiumu, Patrick, Ferguson, Wardle, Chan, George, Murphy, Eden, Moore
