Blow to Olympique de Toulouse as Salford Red Devils take ’18 in-form players’ to France

Toulouse Olympique will be without Guy Armitage for Saturday’s Super League home game against Salford Red Devils with a hand injury.

The center’s absence is the only change in Sylvain Houles’ 21-man squad after last week’s win over Leeds Rhinos.

Vice-captain Maxime Puech returns to action in place of Armitage, with Lloyd White (back) and Andrew Dixon (adductor) injured.

Salford manager Paul Rowley says he has only “18 fit players” to take with him to Toulouse.

He named a 20-man squad with Matt Costello and Dan Sarginson added, but Rowley said the latter was not yet fit enough to feature after nearly five months out with injury.

Sam Luckley is the only player to drop out of the competition as he is serving a one-match ban, joining Sitaleki Akauola who remains suspended.

Shane Wright (hamstring), James Greenwood (ankle), King Vuniyayawa (chip), Harvey Livett (knee), Jack Wells (unspecified), Morgan Escare (thumb) and Tyler Dupree (knee) are all injured.
