Luke Walsh kicked 12 points as Catalans Dragons edged a bruising encounter with Hull FC to earn a second win in as many matches and go top of Super League.

A first half dominated by the forwards ended with the hosts taking an 8-4 lead thanks to Carlos Tuimavave's late try.

But, within a minute of the restart, the French side led when Richie Myler scored after a flowing move from deep.

Liam Watts pounced to touch down to put the Black and Whites ahead again, but Walsh kicked Catalans to victory.
