Tom Amone scored the only try as Leigh stunned Catalans Dragons with a 10-2 win in Perpignan.

Over 1,800 away supporters celebrated in the sunshine after the Leopards put in a controlled and disciplined display to defeat the Dragons for the second time this season.

Leigh thought they had scored first but second-rower Kai O'Donnell was refused by the video referee for a knock-on in the build-up.

Dragons centre Arthur Romano was next to fumble over the line when Catalans threatened to score in the 10th minute.

It was a scrappy opening quarter but Dragons full-back Arthur Mourgue got the scoreboard ticking with a 17th-minute penalty.

Matt Moylan levelled the scores when Dragons hooker Michael McIlorum was penalised for a high tackle and Leigh took the lead moments later when impressive prop Amone forced his way over from short range, Moylan tagging on the conversion for an 8-2 lead at half-time.

Amone needed pathing up in the opening exchanges of the second half with a heavily-bleeding head wound and was substituted moments later.

Scrum-half Lachlan Lam then put O'Donnell through a gap only for McIlorum to hit him with a powerful tackle which loosened the ball and the video referee refused the try.

Leigh went 10-2 ahead through a 54th-minute penalty from Moylan and while Romano had Catalans fans hoping for a late resurgence, he lost the ball in the act of scoring three minutes from the end.
