High-flying Catalan Dragons take on struggling London Broncos at Magic Weekend.

The fourth-placed Dragons go into Sunday's opener on the back of a 42-34 success at Widnes, while the second-from-bottom Broncos have not won in three attempts.

Despite their lowly league position, the Broncos will be encouraged by a record of four wins from the last five Magic Weekend fixtures.

Broncos ace Dan Sarginson said: "We've got a good record at Millenium Magic in Cardiff and hopefully we can take that in to the Magic Weekend in Manchester and make it five from six."

London coach Rob Powell looks set to stick with the side that pushed Hull close last Sunday.

He said: "We felt we were the more dominant team against Hull last week and defensively it was a very strong performance.

"We need to carry that in to the game on Sunday against Catalans who are a very challenging team with the ball."

Stand-off or full-back Luke Dorn is hoping to force his way back into contention but David Howell is out with a rib injury and second row forward Matt Cook will undergo surgery after suffering cruciate knee ligament damage.

For the Dragons, coach Trent Robinson is set to recall hooker Ben Fisher in place of William Barthau in the only change to the side that beat Widnes.

Three-quarters Jean-Philippe Baile and Cyril Stacul are also in the reckoning but David Ferriol, Greg Mounis, Damien Blanch, Daryl Millard, Frederic Vaccari and Setaimata Sa all remain on the injury list.

Dragons: Greenshields, Pryce, Stacul, Bosc, Dureau, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Anderson, Raguin, Baile, Simon, Fakir, Paea, Baitieri, Duport, Fisher, Cardace, Pala

Broncos: Bailey, Bolger, Bryant, Caro, Channing, Clubb, Dixon, Dorn, Gower, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Melling, O'Callaghan, Randall, Rodney, Robertson, Sarginson, Wheeldon, Witt
