Dragons win first game of the season against Rovers


Catalans Dragons secured their first victory of the season with an 18-16 win over Hull KR.

It was the Dragons who scored the first try of the game as Lewis Tierney managed to cross over. Lucas Albert added the extras after the sides traded penalties early on.

The scores were level going into half time as George Lawler was able to cross over. Ryan Shaw added the conversion to ensure the scores were level.

Both sides traded penalties again before Fouad Yaha edged the hosts back in front, Albert kept up his impressive record with the boot to stretch the Dragons lead out to six points again.

But it seemed as though Catalans had blown their chance as Tony Gigot knocked on in goal and Justin Carney pounced. Shaw added the conversion to level the scores once more.

However, a penalty from Albert confirmed the win for the Dragons, their first of the season. They will be hoping to keep this run going when they host Warrington Wolves next Saturday.

As for Hull KR, they fall to a third defat in four games, as they find life difficult back in the Super League. They travel to Huddersfield Giants next Thursday.
