Dragons vs Leeds : Match Preview
SUPER LEAGUE | ROUND 26
CATALANS DRAGONS vs LEEDS RHINOS
GILBERT BRUTUS STADIUM
MONDAY 29 AUGUST | 7pm CEST
Catalans Dragons take on Leeds in the Super League Round 26, kick-off at 7pm CEST at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium.
After having secured a play-offs spot following the debry win over Toulouse last week, Sam Kasiano's teammates will be looking to build on with a win in front of their fans.
A win against the Rhinos tonight would give to the Dragons a home play-offs quarter-final and would ensure them to finish in the Super League Top 4.
Thanks to 6 wins in a row, Leeds is still aiming to go to the play-offs and could come within a point to the Dragons with another victory at Brutus.
Steve McNamara has named his squad to face Leeds.
Arthur Mourgue, Mitchell Pearce, Arthur Romano, Micky McIlorum and Sam Kasiano are back in the squad.
The staff will be without Sam Tomkins, Matthieu Laguerre, Benjamin Jullien, Julian Bousquet, Mike McMeeken, Jordan Dezaria and Mathieu Cozza.
Rhinos squad named
4. Liam Sutcliffe , 5. Ash Handley, 8. Mikolaj Oledzki, 9. Kruise Leeming, 10. Matt Prior, 11. James Bentley, 12. Rhyse Martin, 13. Zane Tetevano, 14. Brad Dwyer, 16. Richie Myler, 20.
