Catalans Dragons strolled to a 38-6 win to extend their winning streak to three matches against the high-flying Salford Red Devils.
The visitors travelled to Perpignan on the back of five successive victories but the Dragons were in complete control as Vicent Duport crossed the whitewash on three occasions.
The winger opened the scoring in the ninth minute when he touched down in the corner before crashing over for his second to go 14-0 up at the break, courtesy of three Luke Walsh kicks.
Krisnan Inu extended the Dragons lead with a great take from a cross-field kick from former Red Devil Richie Myler before Salford finally got on the scoreboard through a full-length try through Justin Carney.
Myler turned from provider to cross the whitewash, while Tony Gigot's second try in two matches since his return from suspension, two Walsh drop-goals and Duport's final try to sealed a comfortable victory for the Catalans.
