Oscar Thomas is set to make his Keighley Cougars debut on Saturday at Toulouse Olympique.

The 29-year-old utility back has been playing in France's Elite One Championship for Villeneuve earlier this year, so it is a quick return to the country for him.

Former Leigh prop Mark Ioane is back in the fold after missing the last few matches too.

That could be vital for Cougars going forward, with the 32-year-old one of the squad's key players, especially after the mid-season departures of the likes of Ben Crooks and Dane Chisholm.

There also spots in the squad for young Leeds loan duo Joe Gibbons and Tom Nicholson-Watton.

Gibbons was at the club earlier in the year, but went back to Headingley following an injury.

Another new signing, Ben Stead, is not in the squad for the trip to Toulouse.

This is Matt Foster's second game in charge as head coach, after he made his bow with a 38-22 home defeat against Widnes.

Cougars currently sit a point above the Betfred Championship drop zone with eight games to go.
