Wildcats head coach Richard Agar has been forced to make three changes to his 19-man squad for Saturday’s trip to take on Catalan Dragons.
Last weekend’s encounter with Bradford saw the Wildcats lose Steve Southern (ankle) and Frankie Mariano (groin) to injury during the game, with Dean Collis (collarbone) also missing out on the journey to France.
Richard Agar revealed in Thursday’s weekly press conference that Southern is set for 3-4 weeks on the sideline, Collis will spend 3 weeks out of action with Mariano out for 1-2 weeks.
Their places in the squad go to Lucas Walshaw as he returns from the illness that kept him out of the visit to Odsal, with props Matt James and Paul Johnson also winning a recall to the 19.
The full squad is as below:
Tickets for Saturday’s game will be on sale on the gate in Perpignan and are no longer available from the club.
Anyone travelling, or planning to travel, are reminded that kick-off is 4pm French time.
