Match Highlights

Official Report / Commentary

Catalans Dragons strolled to a 38-6 victory to extend their winning streak to three matches against the high-flying Salford Red Devils.

The visitors travelled to Perpignan on the back of five successive victories but the Dragons were in complete control as Vincent Duport crossed the whitewash on three occasions and Luke Walsh contributed 14 points with the boot.

The winger opened the scoring in the ninth minute when he touched down in the corner before crashing over for his second as the Dragons moved 14-0 up at the break.

Krisnan Inu extended the Dragons lead before Salford finally got on the scoreboard through a long-range try from winger Justin Carney.

Richie Myler also crossed for the hosts before Tony Gigot scored his second try in two matches. Walsh added two drop-goals to his tally and Duport completed his treble to seal a comfortable victory.

Catalans head coach Laurent Frayssinous hailed his side’s defensive display during the win.

"I'm pleased with the last few weeks and especially tonight with our defence," he said.

"I thought that was our best performance of the season in defence. I know that Salford played on Friday and there was some tiredness there but we did our job which is really pleasing.

"Like every team in the competition, we have our bruises and our injury problems but I'm really pleased with how the squad is reacting and putting their hands up to play for us.”

Salford head coach Ian Watson believed the exertions of the Easter programme caught up with his team.

"Tiredness affected us massively,” he said.

“There were points in the game where it was there to be won and we just didn't have that little bit of energy but we've not wanted to make a big deal out of it.

"I thought Catalans played really well, I thought they played smart at certain times. I thought at half-time that we could come back and get a result but, at certain points, we just didn't have that energy and whether that is just the Easter programme catching up with us or something else is something for us to look at."
