Hull v Catalans preview
Catalan aim to keep the pressure on St Helens in the race for third when they travel to meet a depleted Hull in Sunday's Super League clash.
The Dragons will be seeking to complete the double following their recent 44-14 win in Perpignan.
Already without a host of regulars through injury, Hull have lost Joe Westerman to suspension and coach Peter Gentle will give late fitness tests to a host of unnamed players before kick-off, not that he is looking to make excuses.
"We are all over the shop at the moment, including with our team selection, but it's been individuals not respecting the ball enough that has cost us," Gentle said.
"We need to find some consistency in what we are doing. Our completion rate simply hasn't been good enough.
"You can be the best defensive team in the competition, but with the amount of possession we are gifting teams, it's very hard to be consistently good in defence.
"Catalan are a big physical side so it's a fair challenge. But, if we can match them in the middle, we can go a long way towards getting the points.
"If we don't control the middle, Scott Dureau can play on the front foot and saw in France what happens when he does."
Hooker Danny Houghton and centre Jordan Turner are set to return for Hull after missing last week's defeat at Wigan while centre Ben Crooks is recalled following routine knee surgery.
Catalan have full-back Clint Greenshields back after a month's injury absence in place of Cyril Stacul while second row pair Setaimata Sa and Louis Anderson also return from injury, but prop Lopini Paea misses only his second Super League match of the season.
