Salford Red Devils make the trip across the channel this Saturday to the Stade Gilbert Brutus as they go up against 7th place Catalans Dragons.

Salford who themselves currently sit just above their opponents in fourth place, will be looking to bounce back from their 26-4 defeat to 2nd place St Helens on Thursday night.

Although still arguably the favourites going into the weekend, Salford’s 24-22 victory over Hull KR remains the team’s only victory out of their last three fixtures.

Catalans Dragons, who remain the only team in the league to be based outside England come into the clash having narrowly beaten Warrington Wolves in a nailbiting 23-22 clash.

They will look to build on their victory on Saturday, having completed an impressive three wins out of their last four fixtures.

Salford are also likely to be without prop Lee Mossop and George Griffin who both picked up injuries during the defeat to St Helens, although manager Ian Watson didn’t seem too concerned when asked about squad depth, stating in his post-match conference “I don’t think we’re in a desperate situation just yet.”

Kick off is set for 5pm GMT, Saturday at the Stade Gilbert Brutus. Tickets are still available for Saturday over the phone at the AJ Bell stadium office.
