Catalans Dragons vs Salford Red Devils Super League Round 22 Preview


Salford travel to perpignan hoping to improve on some poor performances recently whilst Catalan dragons will be sensing another victory as they attempt to climb above close rivals Huddersfield and Wakefield . It’s a must win game for the dragons who have Jodie Broughton fit again to face his former team mates.Michael Goudemond makes way This is starting to look like a very stable Catalan team who are being directed around the field superbly by Josh Drinkwater . His superb kicking game is ideal for David Mead,Brayden Williame and wingers Broughton and Yaha and there have also been significant contributions from Junior Langi , Greg Bird, Kenny Edwards and Benjamin Jullien in recent weeks . Whilst Salford are able to field their own skilled players in Josh Jones and Robert Lui they are simply lacking too much firepower in the pack and whilst in the nineteen their top forward Kopczak is unlikely to make the starting seventeen because of injury . In a hot south of France Salford are going to run out of steam and I’m predicting a big Catalan win by 30-34 points . That will keep the smile on Steve McNamara’s face for a further week and leave Salford coach Watson planning for the middle eights. Catalans (from): Mead, Broughton, Wiliame, Yaha, Langi, Casty, Moa, Anderson, Garcia, Bird, Bousquet, Simon, Baitieri, McIlorum, Tierney, Jullien, Gigot, Drinkwater, Edwards. Salford (from): Sa'u, Evalds, Lui, Kopczak, Jones, Flanagan, Tasi, Lannon, McCarthy, Nakubuwai, Wood, Olpherts, Mossop, Bibby, Nzoungou, Murray, Shorrocks, Chamberlain, Burke.
