Warrington v Catalans preview

Micky Higham is set to make his 100th appearance for Warrington in Friday's Super League clash with Catalans at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The England international hooker, who joined Warrington in 2009, is likely to be part of an unchanged squad from those on duty during the draw with Wigan Warriors last week.

The only change in Tony Smith's initial 19-man selecton sees Tyrone McCarthy replace Ben Currie, who did not make the match-day cut against Wigan.

Loose forward Ben Harrison is Warrington's only injury absentee after undergoing a double hernia operation that will sideline him for six weeks.

Catalan Dragons are looking for their third straight win after victories over Hull KR and Salford to open the season.

The Dragons have drafted in prop Mickael Simon in place of the suspended Julian Bousquet, who was sent off for a high tackle against Salford, and will also be without co-captain Gregory Mounis due to a finger injury.

Warrington squad: Atkins, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Evans, Grix, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, McCarthy, J Monaghan, M Monaghan, Morley, Myler, Ratchford, Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.

Catalans squad: Webb, Blanch, Pryce, Taia, Bosc, Elima, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Anderson, Barthau, Pelissier,Larroyer, Millard, Simon, Pala, Fakir, Baitieri, Duport.
