Preview: Dragons v Trinity

Catalans Dragons v Wakefield Trinity (14:00) - Sunday 4 October 

Catalans Dragons and Wakefield Trinity meet at the Stade Gilbert Brutus on Sunday in a game brought forward from later this month in a fixture reshuffle.

Dragons remain in with an excellent chance of reaching the Super League play-offs. 

Steve McNamara's side ran out 34-6 winners against a youthful Leeds Rhinos outfit in their last outing, and they know victory over Trinity could see them move up to fourth in the table. 

Trinity are without a win since lockdown and will fall to the bottom of Super League with defeat to the French side.

Chris Chester makes one change to his squad from the loss to Wigan Warriors - Innes Senior replacing David Fifita. 

Dragons are boosted by the return of David Mead, who scored a hat-trick in a 36-24 triumph over Trinity when the sides met in the Challenge Cup in August.

Sunday's game is the second in front of a crowd in Perpignan. 5,000 fans are permitted to attend matches in the French region. 

Remi Casty is in line to make his 300th Super League appearance.
