The Catalan Dragons' leading light, Thomas Bosc, is poised to return to Super League tomorrow after a frustrating eight months on the sidelines.

The French international stand-off has not played since rupturing his knee last August, but has come through two games with the Dragons' feeder club.

Now he is set to make his senior comeback against Hull, despite the Catalans' stunning recent record of beating Warrington and Wigan in quick succession.

"I have to put my hand up for a place against Hull," he said. "The team is in great shape and full of confidence following the recent victories so I need to get to that level pretty quickly."

Hull have dropped their winger, Will Sharp, for the trip to Perpignan, with Reece Lyne and Richard Whiting vying to take his place.

Wigan have left Darrell Goulding and Amos Roberts out of their squad to face Hull KR tonight.

Warrington are ready to field 21-year-old winger Rhys Williams against Crusaders, the club with whom he spent a successful spell on loan.
