INJURIES to Steve Southern, Dean Collis and Frankie Mariano have forced Wakefield Trinity Wildcats boss Richard Agar into three changes to his 19-man squad for the Stobart Super League round 19 clash at Catalans Dragons on Saturday.

Southern (ankle) and Collis (collarbone) are both out for between three and four weeks while Mariano (groin) will be sidelined for one to two weeks.

Lucas Walshaw, who returns from the illness that kept him out of last week’s defeat at Bradford Bulls, returns to the fold as do props Matt James and Paul Johnson.

The squad is: Mathers, Fox, Mellars, Cockayne, John, Wood, Wilkes, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Washbrook, Aiton, Amor, Johnson, Kirmond, Smith, Trout, James, Walshaw, Sykes.
