Folau stars as Dragons rout Tigers, Wolves thrash Hull KR

Israel Folau scored a try and set up three more as the Catalans Dragons came from behind to thrash Castleford Tigers 40-14 in Super League.

The Tigers raced into a 14-point lead following Michael Shenton's early double but fell apart when Peter Mata'utia was sin-binned with 10 first-half minutes to go.

Catalans scored 40 unanswered points as Folau teed up Tom Davies for the first of the visitors' seven tries.

Folau – who once again did not kneel for the Black Lives Movement prior to kick-off – also went in prior to half-time, before the centre set up a further tries after the interval.

Warrington Wolves also scored 40 points in their first Super League match back as they cruised to a comfortable 40-10 win over Hull KR.

Tom Lineham scored two of their seven tries, with Josh Charnley, Gareth Widdop and Stefan Ratchford among the others to go over.
