Catalans bring back Pelo and Sa in time for Warrington's visit to France

Catalans Dragons have lifted the suspension on three-quarters Dimitri Pelo and Setaimata Sa, who are set to return for the Super League visit of Warrington.

Catalans Dragons have lifted the suspension on three-quarters Dimitri Pelo and Setaimata Sa, who are set to return for the Super League visit of Warrington on Saturday. The Dragons board imposed a ban on the pair eight days ago for a breach of club discipline. It is thought to be related to a nightclub incident in Perpignan, the French town where the club are based. The directors lifted the suspension yesterday but have fined both players, who also have a court case hanging over them following a city-centre fracas in Leeds, England, earlier this year.

Pelo and Sa returned to training on Tuesday and look certain to line up against the Wolves at the Aime Giral Stadium for what will be a dress rehearsal for next month's Challenge Cup semi-final showdown at Widnes's ground. However, Catalans will be without the free-scoring full-back Clint Greenshields, who suffered a thigh strain on Saturday in a 26-22 home defeat by Crusaders, and is likely to be replaced by Pelo.

Greenshields is expected back in time for the semi-final against Warrington on August 8, when coach Kevin Walters also hopes to have the services of the Australian utility back Chris Walker. Walker was also suspended for a breach of club discipline earlier this year and has missed the past three months with a neck injury. * PA
