Mason Caton-Brown’s hat-trick helped Wakefield come from behind to beat Catalans Dragons in Super League.
Vincent Duport went over for Catalans’ first try of the game, but Caton-Brown and Ben Jones-Bishop crossed for Wakefield late in the first half.
Caton-Brown’s second try of the game extended Trinity’s lead, before Fouad Yaha touched down for the Dragons.
Caton-Brown finished in the corner for his third, with tries for Jones-Bishop and Craig Huby sealing the win.
Huby’s try came on the 300th appearance of his career, and was his second in 12 games since joining Wakefield before the current season.
Catalans also had Luke Walsh and Duport sent to the sin-bin in the second half as they failed in their bid to win for a fourth successive time at Wakefield’s ground.
Trinity, boosted by the return of Reece Lyne from injury, completed the double over Catalans, having beaten them 38-18 in Perpignan on 1 April.
The win lifts them above Dragons and St Helens to sixth in the table, with the French side falling to eighth place.
