Dragons too hot for Hull
French side on course for high play-off seeding
Catalan Dragons moved back up to third place in the Stobart Super League with a 44-14 victory over Hull FC.
But it had all started so well for the visitors as they took an early lead through Ben Crooks.
Catalans quickly responded as they ran in four tries before the half-time interval, with Scott Dureau scoring the pick of the bunch with a 90-metre interception try.
Hull could only muster a Tom Briscoe try in response to tries from Leon Pryce, Daryl Millard and a second for Dureau as the half-time hooter sounded to see the Catalans take a 22-8 lead after Dureau's three goals from four attempts.
After the break it took the home side just two minutes to extend the lead as Millard added his second of the evening after good work by Clint Greenshields and Pryce. Dureau added the goal to extend the lead further.
Six minutes later and Dureau again intercepted on his own 10 metre line and raced away before Briscoe managed to get back and force the half back into an offload that found Damien Blanch.
The Ireland international raced down the right touchline to score, taking out the corner flag in the process.
The referee and touch judge decided that it was a try under the new ruling this season. Dureau missed the conversion.
Hull briefly stemmed the tide as Briscoe jinked his way back through the Catalan defence for his second try of the game in the 63rd minute.
Joe Westerman added his first goal from three attempts to make the score 32-14.
However, with 12 minutes left, Greenshields sealed the win for Catalan with a superb try that saw Dureau put in a reverse kick through to allow the full-back the chance to score next to the posts.
Dureau added the conversion, as he did for the eighth and last Catalan try from Greenshields.
The full-back dived over for his second score of the match as the Dragons confirmed their potential Grand Final credentials.
