Catalans halted in Leeds, Leigh thump Huddersfield

Updated: 

Catalans Dragons' unbeaten start to the Super League season ended on Friday as they were beaten 46-10 by the resurgent Leeds Rhinos at Headingley.

Leeds bounced back from their 66-10 trouncing against Castleford Tigers last time out by running in seven tries against their French opponents.

Leading 14-4 at half-time, the hosts kicked on after the interval, with Jimmy Keinhorst, Adam Cuthbertson, Rob Burrow, Danny McGuire and Liam Sutcliffe all touching down during the second 40 minutes.

The victory lifts Leeds above Catalans to fourth, with Hull FC third following their 24-14 win over out-of-form St Helens.

Albert Kelly scored twice in a scrappy encounter at the KCOM Stadium, as the home side recovered from an 8-6 half-time deficit to post their third win of the season.

Leigh Centurions' return to the top flight stepped up a gear as they locked out Huddersfield Giants in a 30-0 victory in the day's remaining fixture.

The result leaves Huddersfield with just two wins from their opening five fixtures.
