Catalan Dragons welcome back Scott Dureau for the first time this season when they tackle London Broncos at Magic Weekend in Manchester.

The former Newcastle Knights half-back has missed the whole of the 2013 season so far after undergoing successful surgery to remove a tumour from behind his eye following a routine test last September.

Lopini Paea, Frederic Vaccari, Julian Bousquet are all fit to play although Brent Webb, Olivier Elima and Jason Baitieri will play no part on Saturday.

The Dragons have an excellent record against the Londoners, winning the last six meetings. The Broncos' last success over the French club came at Millennium Magic in Cardiff in 2011 when they were then known as Harlequins.

Mike Bishay, Mike McMeeken and Jamie O'Callaghan all come into Tony Rea's 19-man squad with Erjon Dollapi, Alex Hurst and Will Lovell all miss out.

Suspended

Antonio Kaufusi misses the game following his two-match suspension for a Grade C reckless strike during the Broncos' Tetley's Challenge Cup win over Bradford, although he will be available to face Castleford on June 1.

Tony Clubb returned to full training this week but will not be risked against the Dragons. Will Lovell, Tommy Lee and Chad Randall are all being assessed following recent injuries.

Youngster Bishay will make his Super League debut if selected and is eager to feature, saying: "It will be brilliant if I make my debut, it'll be such a good experience.

"I've been training for the last year and a half full-time but it's been worth the wait, I've just got to wait for my chance to come and hopefully take it with both hands."

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

London Broncos: Bailey, Bishay, Bryant, Cook, Dixon, Dorn, Fisher, Gower, Grady, Howell, Krasniqi, McMeeken, Mendeika, O'Callaghan, Robertson, Rodney, Sarginson, Wheeldon, Witt.
