Davies hat-trick downs Wakefield

Davies hat-trick downs Wakefield

Friday's Betfred Super League action.

Tom Davies scored a hat-trick of tries as Catalans Dragons claimed a 38-18 win at Wakefield Trinity on Friday night.

Davies grabbed two of his tries in the first half as the French outfit led 20-12 at half time.

Mike McMeeken and Dean Whare also got over for the Dragons, James Maloney kicking two goals, with the home side's response coming through tries for Olly Ashall-Bott and Max Jowitt, plus two Mason Lino goals.

Reece Lyne's try on 44 minutes, goaled by Lino, gave Trinity a dose of hope soon after the restart, but Catalans would storm to a 20-point win late in the game with Whare's second on 67 minutes handing them a crucial advantage.

Davies completed his hat-trick on 75 minutes before Samisoni Langi rounded off the scoring on 77'. Maloney converted all three second-half tries.

Elsewhere, Leigh Centurions' winless start to 2021 continued but they gave reigning champions St Helens a scare in falling to a 22-12 loss on home turf.

Ben Reylonds converted tries from Matty Russell and Anthony Gelling either side of half time as Leigh kept the visitors within touching distance throughout.

The scores were level at 6-all at half time, but Saints were able to see the result through as Lachlan Coote, who kicked three goals, Jack Welsby and Kevin Naiqama all scored second-half tries in a 17-minute period before the hour mark.

Those tries followed a converted Sione Mata'utia four-pointer after 21 minutes.

Finally on Friday, Niall Evalds scored a try against his former club as Castleford Tigers overcame Salford Red Devils 28-18 at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Evalds went over after just six minutes which helped the Tigers into a 14-12 half-time lead.

Liam Watts also scored a first-half try, with Danny Richardson kicking three goals in response to scores from Kevin Brown and Andy Ackers, with two Harvey Livett conversions.

Tui Lolohea scored on 73 minutes, Brown booting a quickfire goal to set up a tight finish, but it wasn't enough as three more Richardson goals, alongside tries from Cheyse Blair and Jake Trueman, handed the Tigers the points.
