FRANCE NAME SQUAD TO FACE WALES

CATALANS DRAGONS MAKE UP BULK OF COACH COLOGNI'S PARTY FOR THE DATE AGAINST THE DRAGONS IN LENS

FRANCE coach Aurelien Cologni has included 14 players from Catalan Dragons in his 19-man squad for the game against Wales in Lens on Saturday October 20.

Four of the five non-Dragons players have all spent time in the past with the Perpignan club, including national captain Olivier Elima who will return for a second spell with them in 2013 after leaving Bradford.

The autumn international series - France play England at Hull KR's Craven Park on Saturday, November 3 - will provide a swansong for veteran forwards David Ferriol and Sebastien Raguin, who played their last matches for the Catalans last month.
