Friday 13th November, 19:45, Play-Offs, Halliwell Jones Stadium, Catalans Dragons versus Leeds Rhinos

It is perhaps a little harsh that Catalans are playing their home play-off tie at the home of the Warrington Wolves, but 2020 has been a funny old season all round. The Dragons have played the least games out of any side this year with just 12 and have played just one game in the past six weeks – a 42-24 loss to Salford. Leeds, meanwhile, have played six games in that time, including a narrow 20-18 triumph over Wakefield last time out.

Matt Whitley, Jason Baitieri, Sam Tomkins and Joel Tomkins are brought back into the Catalans squad as Benjamin Jullien, Lucas Albert, Arthur Romano and Joe Chan are omitted.
