Leeds climbed off the bottom of the Betfred Super League standings after beating Catalans Dragons while Castleford beat London.

Sunday's results

  • Castleford Tigers 42-10 London Broncos
  • Leeds Rhinos 31-12 Catalans Dragons

Former London players Tuoyo Egodo and Mike McMeeken both scored twice as Castleford recorded a thumping eight-try victory to end the Broncos' three-match winning streak.

Winger Egodo opened the scoring in the 12th minute and completed his brace in the second half while second-rower McMeeken touched down twice in the first period.

The Broncos trailed just 16-4 at the break after winger Kieran Dixon got on the scoresheet but after the interval they capitulated, conceding five second-half scores as Castleford ran amok.

Jordan Rankin, Jake Trueman, James Clare, Chris Clarkson also scored for the Tigers as they claimed a win which lifted them into the play-off places.

Wales winger Rhys Williams claimed a late consolation try for the Broncos but the heavy defeat saw them return to the bottom of the Super League table.

Leeds climbed off the bottom of the Betfred Super League standings after beating Catalans Dragons 31-12 at Headingley.

Three tries in the opening 17 minutes from Adam Cuthbertson, Tom Briscoe and Brad Singleton, combined with second-half scores from Konrad Hurrell and Jack Walker, helped push the relegation-threatened Rhinos up to ninth.

Catalans had threatened a fightback when, from 18-0 down, they reduced the gap to just six points thanks to tries from Arthur Romano and Sam Tomkins either side of half-time.

But Hurrell's 66th-minute effort halted the away side's recovery as the Dragons slumped to their fifth loss in a row.

The French side are in freefall and have now dropped out of the top five after losing four Super League games and a Challenge Cup tie in the past month.
