Friday 9th October, 18:15, Super League Round 15, Stade Gilbert Brutus, Perpignan, Catalans Dragons versus Hull KR Match Preview

Catalans have overcome a three-match losing run in recent weeks, beating both Leeds and Wakefield comfortably to occupy the fourth spot in the Super League table. Hull KR, however, have won just two league games all year, the last of which came in the beginning of September. A narrow 32-22 loss to Huddersfield last time out consolidated the Robins’ position as second-bottom in the league.
