Official Match Report

Kenny Edwards scored a 77th-minute try as Catalans Dragons returned to winning ways with a 26-20 victory over Hull FC.

Edwards powered over three minutes from time to give the visitors the lead and Lucas Albert converted to ensure they ended a run of six-successive Betfred Super League defeats dating back to July 21.

However, the pain goes on for Lee Radford’s side, who have now lost 10 consecutive games and have only one Super 8’s fixture at Wigan Warriors remaining to end the depressing sequence.

Tries from Sam Moa and Tony Gigot put the visitors ahead as Josh Drinkwater added the extras, while Josh Griffin, Brad Fash and a conversion from Jake Connor brought Hull back into the game.

Iain Thornley crossed over just before the hour to extend the Dragons' lead but Fetuli Talanoa replied moments later and Jamie Shaul added another for the hosts - with Connor on target with his second goal of the game.

But Brayden Wiliame was quick to respond at the other end before Edwards and Albert sealed the win late on.

Catalans Dragons boss Steve McNamara said: “We were in front for most of the time and looked as though it was going to get taken away from us. So, to come back with a couple of nice pieces of play in the last six or seven minutes, we are delighted.

“I can’t speak highly enough of the group. They have been incredible. This is our seventh trip to England in nine weeks and find some energy to play. I would have settled for a draw at the end but I’m delighted to get the win.”

Hull FC boss Lee Radford said: ”You can’t be disappointed with that result ultimately when we are defending like we are. You watch the tries we conceded: the system stuff you have to stand by them, the one-on-one tackles you have to make.

“We were mad with the football but we had two mavericks at half-back. There was no organisation and temperament in terms of patience but that’s what you have with those two blokes (Jake Connor/Hakim Miloudi) at six and seven."
