Wakefield half back Tim Smith was pleased with their clinical edge after orchestrating just their second win of the season against Catalan.
The Wildcats upset the form book to record their first win since the opening day victory over Widnes, and just like in that match, Smith was instrumental.
They scored four tries in the first half as they opened up an 18-0 lead within the first 25 minutes, with Peter Fox‘s score on the stroke of half time sending them in 24-6 to the good.
And high-flying Catalan, who had lost just once prior to the weekend, had no answer, briefly rallying before going down 32-22.
Smith told the club’s official website: “We played well. They’re a quality side and we’re happy that we got the two points.
“We made it a little bit hard for ourselves but I thought we were definitely the better side today.
“It’s one thing that we’ve focused on. We’re making all these chances but we’re not finishing them sometimes.
“We’re finishing them now and we can still get better so that’s a positive.”
Wakefield’s next two games come against teams currently below them in the Super League table, London on Saturday and then Castleford on Good Friday.
