Catalans Dragons vs Warrington Wolves Super League Round 6 Preview

The Catalans welcome Warrington to Perpignan after claiming their first win of the season over Hull Kingston Rovers, France is never an easy place to claim a win but that is the task that Warrington have ahead, boosted by the return of Bryson Goodwin.

The two sides met 3 times back in the 2017 season, Warrington claiming victory two out of the three meetings. Going further back, in the last 3 seasons of Super League, the Dragons have only won 2 meeting out of 9, both on home soil.
The Wolves are without stalwart centre Ryan Atkins, after he sustained a hip injury in last week's loss to St Helens, Sitaleki Akouola takes his place in the 19 man squad as the only change from the side that took on Saints. Catalans make just one change from the side that beat Hull KR last week, Vincent Duport replaces the suspended Jason Baitieri, Baitieri serving a two match ban after being charged with Grade B dangerous Contact.

Catalans Dragons - David Mead, Iain Thornley, Brayden Williame, Fouad Yaha, Remi Casty, Paul Aiton, Sam Moa, Louis Anderson, Benjamin Garcia, Greg Bird, Julian Bousquet, Mickaael Simon, Vincent Duport, Thibaud Margalet, Michael Mcilorum, Lewis Tiermey, Benjamin Jullien, Lucas Albert, Tony Gigot.

Warrington Wolves - Sitaleki Akauola, Kevin Brown, Mitch Brown, Daryl Clark, Mike Cooper, Dominic Crosby, Bryson Goodwin, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, George King, Toby King, Tom Lineham, Harvey Livett, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Joe Philbin, Stefan Ratchford, Tyrone Roberts, Morgan Smith, Ben Westwood

The Catalans will be playing with confidence after picking up their first win of the season, Warrington will looking to get their season back on track after a poor start, currently sitting in 9th on 4 losses and 2 wins, I believe that this will be a tighter game than predicted, Catalans hate losing at home and know that if they want to leave the basement of the Super League table and avoid the bottom 4, now is a crucial, however, the Wolves I feel are going to want this a little more and I'm predicting a margin of 6-12 points to Warrington.
