Dragons v Rhinos: Teams
At Stade Gilbert Brutus Saturday August 18, kick-off 4.45pm
The Catalan Dragons will look to arrest their recent slump in form against Challenge Cup finalists Leeds Rhinos on Saturday afternoon.
Trent Robinson's Dragons have lost three of their last four Super League games, including a 30-10 defeat at Hull FC last weekend.
Back-to-back defeats have allowed Leeds, who take on Warrington at Wembley next Saturday, to move above them in the table.
Leeds have a notoriously poor record ahead of Challenge Cup finals, including suffering an embarrassing 32-22 loss to Harlequins last season ahead of their final clash with Wigan.
As for this year, the Rhinos have already toppled the French club once this season after running out 34-18 winners when the teams met at Headingley back in April.
However, this time around coach Brian McDermott has a number of absentees for the game, with Rob Burrow, who suffered a calf injury in their win over Widnes, and Danny McGuire (knee) out.
"Rob has been left out as a pre-caution but he is a doubt for the Challenge Cup Final at this stage, hopefully the injury will continue to improve with treatment but it is not right at present," McDermott told the club's official website.
Meanwhile, Dragons coach Trent Robinson has received a double boost ahead of the visit of the champions, though he is still without a number of first-teamers.
Thomas Bosc has recovered from injury and is set to make his return while Mathias Pala is also back in the 19-man squad.
But Steve Menzies, Julian Bousquet, Jean-Philippe Baile, Mickael Simon and Lopini Paea all out due to injury and will play no part in the fixture.
Catalan: Greenshields, Blanch, Pryce, Sa, Bosc, Dureau, Ferriol, Henderson, Casty, Anderson, Mounis, Raguin, Pelissier, Millard, Fakir Baitieri, Duport, Cardace, Pala
Leeds: Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Hardaker, Hall, Leuluai, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Hauraki, Griffin, Moore, Ward, Lunt, Keinhorst
