Catalan Dragons will be hoping for home comforts on Saturday when the Wakefield Wildcats are the visitors to the Stade Gilbert Brutus.

The Perpignan club have only had one home match from their four Super League matches this season, a 40-6 victory over the Salford City Reds.

Wakefield have won two and lost two of their four outings this term, including a 18-16 defeat to league leaders Huddersfield Giants last Sunday.

Kyle Trout has been recalled from his dual registration deal with Doncaster to be included in Wakefield's 19-man squad.

The former Stanley Rangers junior returns to help plug the gap left by captain Danny Kirmond, who will be out of action for up to four weeks following an operation on a knee injury.

Trout and Mariano will both be in contention for starting roles in France, while Matty Wildie also returns with Vince Mellars dropping out.

Former New Zealand international full-back Brent Webb returns from suspension for Catalans but Julian Bousquet is still serving his own ban.

Australian playmaker Scott Dureau and Lopini Paea remain sidelined for Laurent Frayssinous's side due to injury.

Catalan Dragons: Webb, Blanch, Pryce, Bosc, Elima, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Anderson, Mounis, Maria, Pelissier, Larroyer, Millard, Pala, Simon, Fakir, Baitieri, Duport.

Wakefield Wildcats: Mathers, Fox, Collis, L. Smith, Cockayne, Sykes, T. Smith, Poore, Aiton, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Washbrook, Wood, Amor, Wilkes, Mariano, Trout, Wildie, Annakin.

What they said...

Wakefield Wildcats head coach Richard Agar

"I think they're a very big and physical team and you're playing them on their home ground - they've been a very formidable outfit over there for a couple of seasons now and there's the extra travel," he told the Wakefield Express.

"We're going a day early [than last season] so we have got some sizeable elements that we've got to manage. But at the same time I also feel you can utilise that time and I think we're the type of group that actually does thrive on this time together."
