It’s the first home game of the Steve McNamara era for Catalans as they entertain Leigh in the south of France on Saturday evening.
Both sides are in need of a win – with the Dragons only winning one of their past nine Super League games, and the Centurions currently sit bottom of the pile.
The visitors do have cause for optimism having recorded significant wins over Hull and Wigan in recent weeks.
Catalans seem to be coming through the other side of a pretty rotten run of injuries with Greg Bird, Justin Horo and Krisnan Inu all included in their 19-man squad.
The home side are strong favourites with the bookmakers with their best price at 1/4. Leigh probably look a little long at 4/1 – and they’ve been a given a 14-point start on the handicap at 10/11 which looks appealing. Five of Catalans six league wins this season have been by 11 points or fewer.
For a winning margin bet, we’d fancy the home side by 6-10 points at 11/2.
