Official Report / Commentary

David Mead and Jodie Broughton each scored two tries as the Catalans Dragons recorded a 27-6 Betfred Super League win over Huddersfield Giants.

The Giants had gone 6-0 up when Aaron Murphy went over down the left and Darnell McIntosh added the conversion.

And they led 6-4 at the break after Broughton had touched down in the left corner and Tony Gigot missed the extras.

But Catalans moved up a gear after the restart, scoring three tries in 14 minutes. Gigot's kick lead to Benjamin Jullien touching down before Greg Bird set up Mead's first score.

Mead's second soon arrived following a smart offload from Gigot.

Broughton added his second try after a clever play from Michael McIlorum and while Gigot missed the conversion, he added a penalty and a drop-goal in the closing stages.

Huddersfield interim head coach Chris Thorman: "I was disappointed with the way we managed the start of the second half.

“It’s an indicator of where we are as a group. The effort was good but we just conceded a couple of tries from kicks where a couple of young wingers were not quite doing their assignments.

“It’s a bit of a reality check as to where we’re at and you need a bit of luck along the way to get out of these spells and we’re not really getting it."

Catalans head coach Steve McNamara said: "I thought the first half we looked OK but we looked a bit anxious at the same time. But second half I thought we played really well.

"Our discipline was good and we put the ball at the right end of the field. We made Huddersfield work really hard to get out of their end and came up with some really nice tries."
