Salford Red Devils host Catalans Dragons in an interesting clash of styles today.
The Red Devils are an expansive side who thrive in warm and dry conditions meanwhile Catalans Dragons are a physical side who look to bully sides and dominate through the middle of the pitch.
The Dragons have lost three of their last four games after winning their first five games of the season.
They were beaten by the Huddersfield Giants last week whilst Salford defeated Castleford Tigers last week to move into the top six.
Kick-off time and TV Channel
The game kicks off at 14:15.
The game has been moved forward to 14:15 on Sunday to make a double header with the women’s game and will also mean the government’s emergency alert test will occur at halftime.
There is no live TV coverage of the game but highlights will be shown on BBC’s Super League Show.
The Red Devils are looking to build on that strong position in the table position but will have to do so without star winger Ken Sio who is absent.
The good news is Oliver Partington has come through unscathed last week whilst Danny Addy, after an injury last week, is also included.
England called up forward Tyler Dupree is named in the squad as well ahead of next week’s international.
🚨 Paul Rowley has named a 21-man squad to take on @DragonsOfficiel on Sunday!
ℹ️ Remember, kick-off has been altered to 2:15pm!
