Phil Davies makes two changes to the Leeds side that defeated Bath in their last Guinness Premiership game.
Lock Tom Palmer come into the starting line up for Scott Morgan who drops to the replacements bench.
Namibian prop Kees Lensing is ineligible so 21-year-old Academy product Michael Cusack retains his place after an impressive performance in the Powergen Cup last week.
Chris Bell is only fit enough to be named as a replacement following a foot injury with Mike Shelley still recovering from a broken leg.
Julien Laharrague and David Marty have gone down with knee injuries so Perpignan will have to make changes to their back division for the trip to Yotkshire.
South African Gavin Hume and Argentinian Rimas Alvarez-Kairelis are sidelined by the same problem.
And Sebastian Bozzi (bicep), Sebastien Descons (knee) and James Pritchard (quadriceps) are all on the long-term injury list.
