Match Preview and Squad announcement

Prop Jeff Lima, who won the Lance Todd Trophy as man of the match in Wigan's Tetley's Challenge Cup win over Leeds in 2011, returns from a two-match ban for Catalan Dragons' tie against London Broncos in Perpignan on Friday night.

Loose forward Jason Baitieri, the club's co-captain, and centre Vincent Duport are also set to face the Broncos after recovering from injury.

Coach Laurent Frayssinous rests the other co-captain Greg Mounis and former Bradford second rower Elliott Whitehead and called up reserve team hooker Joan Guasch for the first time.

It will be the first Challenge Cup-tie between the two clubs but the Dragons have won their last eight Super League meetings with the Broncos, whose last victory was at the 2011 Magic Weekend in Cardiff.

The two teams played each other in a pre-season friendly in Perpignan and will also meet in the Magic Weekend in Manchester next month.

"We are excited about going over there," London coach Tony Rea said. "It's obviously a place we're very familiar with as a squad and we enjoy travelling to France."
