Carney to debut for Catalans on Saturday

Todd Carney will get a debut for Catalans Dragons on Saturday, after he was named in an incredibly strong side for their opening pre-season match of 2015.

The Dragons take on fellow expansion side London Broncos at Stade Gilbert Brutus, with coach Laurent Frayssinous naming Carney and fellow debutants Remi Casty (second debut) and Willie Tonga in the starting 13.

England international Elliott Whitehead also plays, as do French internationals Morgan Escare and Eloi Pelissier. Injured duo Olivier Elima and Antoni Maria miss out.
