Brandan Wilkinson says the Dons squad are all looking forward to going up against Catalans Dragons this weekend.

The Dons make the trip to the south of France for the Coral Challenge Cup sixth round tie, and Wilkinson says they just need to make the most of the occasion.

He said: “It’s a great opportunity for us, people didn’t give us much of a chance when we faced Batley in the last round so we’ve proved them wrong before.

“It’s a good team bonding exercise, we’re away for a couple of days and it gives us a chance to be around each other.

“The atmosphere is one we can’t wait for, we’ve all seen on television that they get good crowds so we need to enjoy that.”

In a game where the Dons are huge outsiders to progress, Wilkinson says that could work in their favour if they play well.

He added: “We are the underdogs so that could be a good thing, there is no pressure on us to get a result so we want to give it our best shot.

“It’s massive that we play our natural game and don’t panic, if we complete our sets and end them well then we’ll be happy.”
