Catalans Dragons bounced back from last week's defeat with a 27-10 Betfred Super League win over Huddersfield Giants at the Stade Gilbert Brutus.

Sam Tomkins led the way with a try and five goals, while Brayden Williame crossed for a pair of tries and Lewis Tierney also went over.

Matt Frawley and Oliver Roberts scored tries for the visitors with Izaac Farrell adding a goal.

After early Huddersfield pressure was rewarded when Frawley gave them the lead, Williame collected a kick behind the line to score and added his second from a steal to give Catalan a 12-6 advantage.

Tierney took advantage of an overlap as Catalans took an 18-6 lead into the break and a defensive mix-up allowed Tomkins to cross under the posts.

Roberts then grabbed a consolation score eight minutes from the end after gathering a kick into the in-goal area.

Matty Smith wrapped up the victory with a late drop-goal.
