SHEFFIELD Eagles are likely to face the full might of Catalan Dragons in the Challenge Cup clash.

The French club are in fourth place in the Super League and coach Trent Robinson has ruled out picking a weakened team for Saturday evening’s game. Robinson who watched the Eagles score 60 points against Featherstone Rovers said: “Sheffield deserve respect.

“They’re an amazing attacking team so we need to be conscious of how they play.”

Eagles’ boss Mark Aston last night told the players who will be in the 19-man squad to make the trip.

The Eagles fly out tomorrow morning and will have a training session at the Stade Gilbert Brutus, in Perpignan soon after they arrive.
