Ben Jones-Bishop scored a hat-trick and Tom Johnstone bagged a brace as Wakefield Trinity secured a 38-18 Betfred Super League victory over Catalans Dragons at the Stade Gilbert Brutus.

Sam Williams kicked an early penalty for the visitors before Jones-Bishop touched down twice in the space of three minutes. Johnstone went over in the 29th minute, with Williams adding the extras, before Catalans got on the board with a try from Benjamin Garcia and a successful conversion from Luke Walsh.

Wakefield, having led 16-6 at the break, increased their lead through a try from Joe Arundel, but Krisnan Inu crossed for the hosts and Walsh kicked the conversion.

Trinity responded with tries from Matty Ashurst and Jones-Bishop, both converted by Williams, before Catalans scored their third try of the match through Fouad Yaha, with Walsh on target once again.

However, Wakefield had the final word when Johnstone scored his second and Williams made no mistake with the conversion.
