PATRICK Ah Van returns to the Vikings 19-Man squad for this week's trip to Perpignan.

Manase Manuokafoa has served his two match ban for the tackle that sidelined Saints scrum half Matty Smith with a broken leg.

However, Manuokafoa has now sustained a knee injury in training that will rule the prop forward out for a further four weeks.

Vikings, who have lost both of their Super League games so far, have yet to win in Catalans.

Denis Betts has announced his 19-man squad for Friday's game: Patrick Ah Van, Tom Armstrong, Chris Bridge, Jack Buchanan, Hep Cahill, Jay Chapelhow, Danny Craven, Gil Dudson, Rhys Hanbury, Aaron Heremaia, Chris Houston, Jordan Johnstone, MacGraff Leuluai, Stefan Marsh, Tom Olbison, Charly Runciman, Corey Thompson, Lloyd White, Matt Whitley.

Catalans Dragons 19-Man Squad: Jodie Broughton, Krisnan Inu, Brayden Wiliame, Luke Walsh, Richard Myler, Paul Aiton, Remy Casty, Louis Anderson, Justin Horo, Greg Bird, Ben Garcia, Thomas Bosc, Vincent Duport, Mickael Simon, Luke Burgess, Iain Thornley, Lucas Albert, Alrix Da Costa, Thibaud Margalet.
