Scott Dureau has been included in Catalan Dragons' squad to face in-form Hull FC - but it's still not clear if the half-back will play on Saturday.

Australian Dureau was sent for further medical checks after being taken ill during his side's 32-32 Super League draw at Widnes last Sunday.

The Dragons playmaker - who has only recently returned to action after having a tumour removed in January - complained of blurred vision while lining up a goal kick in the second-half of the clash with the Vikings.

Thomas Bosc is ready to step in if his team-mate is not fit to feature, though the hosts are able to welcome back prop Lopini Paea and winger Damien Blanch.

Missing duo

Hull, meanwhile, head to Perpignan without winger Tom Briscoe (ribs) and Mark O'Meley (hamstring), though Chris Green has overcome a bicep problem.

Jason Crookes and Joe Arundel seem to be vying to fill Briscoe's place on the wing after both were drafted into Peter Gentle's 19-man squad.

The Black and Whites travel to France looking for a 10th win in their last 11 outings, the last of them being an 18-6 triumph over reigning Super League champions Leeds in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

"You go over there to sunshine and it is a big distraction," Gentle said.

"You've got the pool and you are in a resort so you can fall into that trap but we are going over there to do a job, not to get a sun tan.

"We've spoken about it long and hard this week. I don't think this group will be guilty of that but we have spoken about it and I'm very happy that we are going over there for the right reason."

Catalan Dragons: Blanch, Pryce, Taia, Bosc, Dureau, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Mounis, Maria, Pelissier, Larroyer, Millard,Simon, Fakir, Paea, Duport, Vaccari, Escare.

Hull FC: Arundel, Bowden, Crookes, Crooks, Ellis, Galea, Green, Holdsworth, Heremaia, Houghton, Johnson, Lineham, Lynch, McDonnell, Pitts, Watts, Westerman, Whiting, Yeaman.
