Official Report / Commentary

Catalans Dragons outscored Hull FC by six tries to one to record a 37-6 win in Betfred Super League.

The visitors scored tries through Fouad Yaha, Tony Gigot, Brayden Wiliame, Arthur Romano, Matt Whitley and Samisoni Langi and there were 12 points from the boot of Sam Tomkins. Gigot also kicked a late drop goal.

Injury-hit Hull, without the influential Marc Sneyd and Albert Kelly and missing 17 players in all, had little to show for their efforts as their points came from a Mickey Paea try and a Jake Connor conversion early in the first half.

A Tomkins penalty gave the visitors the lead but Hull scored the first try when Paea collected Connor's pass and went over.

But Yaha slid in at the corner to level the scores and Tomkins added the conversion to give the Dragons a lead they would not relinquish.

Gigot and Williame added further scores before half-time and the efforts from Romano and Whitley came early in the second half, before Langi rounded things off with a late converted try.

Catalans coach Steve McNamara said: "On the back of a horrible performance against Saints it was a great response, a fantastic result for us.

“People talk about the away form and we want to improve that. Teams have to come to France once, possibly twice, and we have 15 trips across here and the Challenge Cup as well. We have put ourselves in a reasonable position now.”

Hull boss Lee Radford said: "I think painful was the word I would use for that performance. It was unbelievably disappointing and the energy levels in the second half were poor. If I knew why I would definitely have fixed it at half-time.

“Probably the outcome of the game was deserved. That’s the third time in my opinion we’ve thrown one of those performances in this season. There’s never a nice way of losing but there’s a respectful way of losing and some of them don’t quite grasp that.”
