The Catalan Dragons will be hoping to win Sunday's game at Castleford and maintain their challenge for third in Super League.

The French club are level on points with St Helens, but an inferior points difference means they are behind Mike Rush's men in the standings.

The Tigers have gone five games without a win since toppling Huddersfield and are in danger of finishing the season bottom of the pile.

Catalan came out on top when they met earlier in the season, with the Dragons securing a 28-20 success in Perpignan.

Return

Castleford are buoyed by the return from injury of hooker Daryl Clark and stand-off Rangi Chase while half-back Jamie Ellis is back from suspension, taking the place of youngster Ben Johnston.

Centre Josh Griffin has already left but the fans will get the chance to say farewell to Danny Orr, Ryan Hudson, Nick Youngquest, Paul Jackson, Stuart Jones and Steve Snitch, who will all be making their final home appearances for the club.

Tigers legend Orr insists the game is not about him, telling the Express: "I'm obviously aware it's my last home game and it will be quite emotional at the end, but I've not really thought about it in that way. I just want to go out and do the best I can for my team-mates and for the club.

"It's not just myself whose last game it is so I don't want it to be just about me. It's more about the team and what we want to achieve."

Catalan coach Trent Robinson is set to give a debut to Antoni Maria and a second Super League outing to Kevin Larroyer.

Second rower Sebastian Raguin is missing due to illness and stand-off Leon Pryce has joined Steve Menzies and Lopini Paea on the injury list.

Castleford: Owen, Youngquest, Chase, Orr, Emmitt, Clare, Huby, Snitch, Jones, Milner, Hudson, Mitchell, Jackson, Millington, Holmes, Massey, Nash, Thompson, Ellis.

Catalan Dragons: Greenshields, Blanch, Sa, Bosc, Dureau, Ferriol, Henderson, Casty, Anderson, Mounis, Pelissier, Millard, Fakir, Baitieri, Duport, Cardace, Pala, Maria, Larroyer.
