The context

Catalans Dragons travel to Leigh in the Super League Round 9 on Saturday, June 12 at the Leigh Sports Village, kick-off at 4pm CET.

Leigh gave a spirited performance during a closely fought loss against Wakefield despite having a depleted bench. The Centurions are doing it a tough at the moment and it won't get any easier in round 9.

Fresh from winning the Betfred Coach of the Month award following an unbeaten run in May, Steve McNamara and his Catalans side head to Leigh rejuvenated after a week off and boast a formidable record away from home this year.


Team News

Fouad Yaha, Paul Séguier, Lambert Belmas et Jason Baitieri are back in the squad, replacing Joel Tomkins, suspended, Gil Dudson, Corentin Le Cam and Jordan Dezaria.

Here is the 21-man squad named by Steve McNamara to face Leigh :
