Catalan Dragons full-back Clint Greenshields is confident his side can bring Leeds' title defence to a halt in Perpignan on Friday and extend his Super League career by at least another week.

Greenshields is calling a halt to his six-year stint in the south of France and returning to an uncertain future in Australia, but he is hoping to mark his farewell home appearance on a winning note, especially after his side's crushing 46-6 defeat at Wigan last week.

"We're a lot better side than everyone saw on Friday night," he said. "A few things didn't go our way and we couldn't pick ourselves back up."

"It was very disappointing because we've worked so hard to get where we are in the ladder," added Greenshields.

"I think we've got the essence there to pick it back up and get the ball rolling again for this week. I've got no doubt about that."

Greenshields, the Dragons' longest-serving overseas player, expects to feel the emotion at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium when he runs out for the last time in front of the fans who have taken him to their heart.

"It will definitely be an emotional time," he said. "I've been there six years and left a lot on the field there.

"I'm going to leave a lot of friends and a lot of special people behind but it's good timing and it's what I've got to do.

"I have a really close family at home and six years is a bit long to stay away from them."
