Caton-Brown hat-trick helps Wakefield past Catalans

Mason Caton-Brown scored a hat-trick as Wakefield Trinity ran out 30-10 winners against ill-disciplined Catalans Dragons.

The visitors went into an early lead through Vincent Deport’s try however Caton-Brown and Ben Jones-Bishop put Wakefield ahead at half time, with Fouad Yaha yellow-carded for a professional foul.

Caton-Brown touched down his second soon after the restart but Yaha returned from the sinbin to reduce the deficit.

The winger completed his hat-trick within the hour before Luke Walsh was sinbinned for the visitors.

Jones-Bishop crossed for his second of the game and Craig Huby touched down Trinity’s sixth try on his 300th career appearance.

Vincent Duport became the third Dragons player to receive a yellow card late on as Wakefield leapfrogged their visitors.
