Catalans Dragons 22 Crusaders 26
Attend: 6,208

Crusaders earned a vital engage Super League victory this evening by coming from behind to sink Catalans Dragons in a dramatic encounter in France.

The win left the Welsh side just two points behind the top eight and gave them an historic double over the Dragons this season.

Tries from Weller Hauraki, Jason Chan, Rhys Hanbury and Peter Lupton - all converted by Clinton Schifcofske, who also kicked a penalty - settled things in the visitors' favour.

The French side mustered a brace of tries from Clint Greenshields and one from Remi Castry in reply, while Thomas Bosc booted three conversions and two penalties.

It was a nervous start for the Welsh side as Catalans started the stronger. They almost took the lead on five minutes when Sebastien Raguin was centimetres short of grounding following a Bosc 40-20 kick.

The tide turned Crusaders' way from the play-the-ball when Jarrod Sammut intercepted and the enthusiastic Malta international ran 90 metres. He was tackled but, from the next play, Hauraki went over with Schifcofske converting.

The Dragons hit back on 18 minutes when Greenshields got on the end of a pin-perfect Bosc grubber with the half-back adding the extras.

Forever the playmaker, Bosc tried to add a further score by running onto his own chip but his opposite number Sammut cleared the ball over the dead-ball line. Luke Dyer saved a 40-20, and a potential try, but was forced to give away a goal-line drop-out.

There was drama at the other end too when Crusaders winger Nick Youngquest had a try ruled out for a forward pass from Vince Mellars.

Catalans then took the lead when, following a penalty, Bosc slipped the ball to Greenshields for the full-back to run over for his and the Dragons' second. Bosc converted again.

Crusaders pressed for a levelling score before the break. They could have had one if Hanbury had not spilled the ball that he intercepted with a potential clear 25-metre run to the line.

But, after a penalty, Chan stormed over in the right-hand corner. Schifcofske kicked well from an acute angle to take the two teams in level at the interval.

The try lifted the Welsh side and, after successfully catching Catalans' risky short kick-off, they took an early second-half lead when Hanbury twisted and turned to edge his way over the try-line. Schifcofske's kick made the score 18-12.

On 53 minutes, the scores were level again. Dallas Johnson broke and opened up a gap for Castry to go in under the sticks. Bosc kept up the night's 100% kicking record by converting and then added a penalty, given for obstruction, eight minutes later to put the hosts back in front.

Crusaders attempted to fight back. Dyer was beaten to Sammut's high bomb but a Schifcofske penalty, awarded for a high tackle, two minutes later levelled the scores at 20-20 with nine minutes left on the clock.

A further Dragons penalty, again from Bosc after a high tackle, put them back in the lead but there was a final twist to the tale.

Mellars recovered a short kick-off and Sammut made a fine run before slipping the ball to Lupton to ground. Schifcofske did not let the pressure and cat-calls get to him and successfully converted to seal the win.

Cheers for the report mate, it looked a good close game while I was in the pub checking the latest score every ten minutes or so via my phones internet.

It puts more pressure on us tomorrow at Odsal.

With Cas and Wakey playing each other today, that result confirms that Catalans can't make the play-offs even by mathematical miracle.
So all they have is the cup, so us Wire fans might not have it easy in the semi..
With us still in the running for the LLT, and play-offs now a certainty, we have got to be prepared for the French to really go for it against us.
Good result for Crusaders, though, and it looks like Salford still could sneak into the 8.
Wires record breaking 10 match run: L 16-17 ; L 34-36 ; L 24-44 ; L 20-38 ; L 8-46; L 14-26 ; L 20-40 ; L 22-48 ; L 14-20 ; L 8-60. Thanks Jimmy.The Glamour Club. Apparently.
