Catalan make two changes for Wigan clash

Catalan have lost two more players to injury ahead of this weekend’s clash with Wigan, as Laurent Fraysinnous makes two changes to his 19-man squad.

Forwards Jason Baitieri and Elliott Whitehead – the latter an influential figure in Catalan’s victory over Huddersfield – have been forced to miss the game due to injuries picked up in last Saturday’s game.

They have been replaced by Julian Bousquet – who has served the remainder of his four-match ban – and Damien Cardace, who has recovered from injury to face Wigan.

The Dragons are still without a number of high-profile players, including the likes of Scott Dureau and Ian Henderson. Jeff Lima is still suspended.

Catalan Dragons 19-man squad to face Wigan (DW Stadium, Friday, 8pm): Escare, Pryce, Pomeroy, Oldfield, Bosc, Elima, Taia, Anderson, Mounis, Maria, Pelissier, Millard, Pala, Simon, Bousquet, Paea, Cardace, Baile, Garcia.
