Team news and statistics ahead of the latest round of action in the First Utility Super League.

Saturday

Catalan Dragons v Widnes

The Dragons are without former Warrington second rower Louis Anderson, who was injured in their Challenge Cup win over London, but recall back-row forwards Greg Mounis and Elliott Whitehead after they were rested last week.

Widnes switch youngster Declan Hulme from wing to centre in the absence of injured trio Cameron Phelps, Stefan Marsh and Rhodri Lloyd while Danny Craven resumes his half-back partnership with Kevin Brown after recovering from a hamstring injury. Rhys Hanbury returns at full-back, which enables Jack Owens to revert to the wing.

Last season: Widnes 32 Catalan Dragons 32, Catalan Dragons 46 Widnes 14.

Last six league matches: Catalan Dragons L L L L W L Widnes W W W L W W.

Top tryscorers: Morgan Escare (Catalan Dragons) 5; Kevin Brown (Widnes) 7.

Top goalscorers: Thomas Bosc (Catalan Dragons) 13; Danny Tickle (Widnes) 22.

Referee: James Child.
