Wakfield Wildcats 40-20 Catalans Dragons

The Wildcats trailed 20-10 just after the half-time interval, but Jamie Rooney continued his magnificent form,scoring six goals and a try to ensure that John Kear’s men finished the game on top.

Wakefield had taken the lead early on when Rooney set-up Semi Tadulala with a kick – Justin Murphy went over in reply for the Dragons, but Rooney set-up Jason Demetriou for Wakefield’s second.

However, the Catalans took control of the game with a try from Jason Croker and Murphy’s second, and two Thomas Bosc penalties after the restart furthered their advantage.

Ben Jeffries started the Wakefield comeback with a try, before yet another Rooney kick allowed Matt Blaymire to score, and Peter Fox followed suit to put the home side back into the driving seat.

Rooney grabbed his own touch down with a 90 metre interception, before Demetriou added a second to seal the game in Wakefield’s favour.
