Catalans v Wakefield: 21-man squads and injury update

Catalans and Wakefield have both announced their 21-man squads for Saturday evening’s round 16 fixture at the Stade Gilbert Brutus (KO 6:15pm UK time).

The Dragons survived a scare at home to Hull KR last week, edging them out to claim a 32-30 victory and extend their winning run to nine games.

Trinity, meanwhile, have lost their last three, with defeats to St Helens, Salford and, most recently, Wigan.

Catalans Dragons

There’s a triple boost for the Dragons, with James Maloney (suspension), Joel Tomkins (suspension) and Michael McIlorum all returning. They replace captain Benjamin Garcia, who suffered a broken arm against Hull KR, Mike McMeeken and Jordan Dezaria.
