Toulouse Olympique vs Catalans Dragons: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

This could have been a seismic French derby with massive repercussions on the relegation battle, however the recent rise of Wakefield Trinity and Toulouse’s inability to add further wins to their name has sapped it of most of its drama.

It is a chance however for the French side to have one last hoorah in the top league at the expense of their French rivals who are struggling at present.

Catalans’ top four status is now under serious threat and they need a win here to get their season back on track.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 19:30 UK time and 18:30 for those in France.

TV coverage starts at 19:00 on Sky Sports Arena.

Predicted Line-ups

Toulouse Olympique
Toulouse will have to make some changes to their backs. Matty Russell’s absence will see Latrell Schaumkel come onto the wing as Tony Gigot’s injury will see Chris Hankinson move into the halves as Olly Ashall-Bott returns to his fullback role after a ban. Meanwhile, Andrew Dixon returns from injury in the backrow as Joe Bretherton could also come back into the mix.

Catalans Dragons
After a shocking defeat to Salford, Steve McNamara will be hoping for a response and will make a few changes.
