Catalan Dragons ran in seven tries as they crushed Salford 40-6 to maintain their winning start to the new Super League season.

Vincent Duport crossed twice for the Dragons, while there were also tries for Remi Casty, Steve Menzies, Ian Henderson, Oliver Elima and Daryl Millard.

Salford could only manage a try through Niall Evalds in reply, but at least they got on the scoreboard after being 'nilled' by Wigan in their opener last weekend.

It was an impressive performance by the Dragons, who dominated throughourt despite losing Julien Bousquet in the third minute to a red card for a late and high hit on youngster Theo Fages.

Brent Webb pretty much ran the show and the Dragons' first try came in the 11th minute when Duport broke down the left hand touchline after a long pass from Webb and set up the field position for Casty to charge over from 15 metres out.

Midway through the half, Henderson won a penalty from acting half with Salford offside and Webb took on the line before offloading to Zeb Taia - who caught and passed in the same movement to the supporting Menzies to go over under the posts.

Salford went the length of the field after Pryce allowed Ryan McGoldrick to run around him and make the half-break that saw Evalds score Salford's first try of the campaign in the right corner.

Back came Catalan, though, as Thomas Bosc and Pryce combined to set up Duport to score in the left corner - and although Bosc missed the kick at goal, his team were 16-6 ahead.

After the break, the Catalans let loose, with Henderson sneaking over and captain Elima scoring on his return to the Stade Gilbert Brutus. Bosc converted both tries to extend the lead to 28-6.

Webb then put his stamp firmly on the game in the last quarter, first setting up the field position and then putting in the final pass to Duport, who scored his second try of the night, which Bosc converted.

From the restart Webb spotted a short side play and sent second row Louis Anderson away to race clear and send Millard in from 50 metres out to score. Bosc completed the scoring with his sixth goal from seven attempts.
