Samisoni Langi Update:- Following an illegal high tackle by Mark Percival, who was subsequently sent off, Catalans took the lead in Newcastle. He dropped a 40m goal at the last second to defeat St Helens 31-30 in extra time on Saturday, a decision Maloney subsequently told Sky Sports (Sunday NZ time).

To make it a golden point, Catalans scored four tries in the second half, one of which was scored by former Kiwi prop Sam Kasiano. Catalan Dragons won their second trophy since entering Super League in 2006.

A year after Steve McNamara took over as Dragons manager, the club had won two championships.

In the 2018 Challenge Cup final, they defeated Warrington 20-14 at Wembley, 11 years after losing to Saints in their first final.

They have a chance to win their first Grand Final with ex-Wigan players Sam Tomkins, Tom Davies, Gil Dudson, Michael McIlorum, and Joel Tomkins.

In spite of having defeated Saints twice in three tries this season, they have plenty to look forward to.

After defeating St Helens in the Challenge Cup final at Wembley in 2018, this victory secured the Dragons’ minor premiership position.

Then, on 14 minutes, Coote produced a chance for Tommy Makinson to score.

On 20 minutes, Percival set up Coote for his second try, which he converted to put Saints up 10-6.

Catalans had prop Sam Kasiano sin-binned and Coote added two more points after James Maloney was penalized for a shoulder charge, giving Saints a commanding lead shortly before the half.

Following a converted Julian Bousquet try, the defending Super League winners extended their lead to three points at 30-12.

With 75 minutes gone, Whare gave Catalans a scare.

With a minute and a half remaining, Dudson scored again.

To force extra time, Maloney converted his third of three late conversions, which Kasiano finished with a high bomb hold.

The drama had just begun.

The Saints’ Tongan forward was stretchered off following a challenge from Agnatius Pa’asi.

Coote missed the first opportunity to win it, and Maloney’s low 40m effort sneaked past in the closing minutes of golden-point extra time.
