Flying start

LONDON - Steve Menzies kicked off his final Super League season in style as Catalan Dragons held off a late fightback to record a 32-24 win against Hull KR yesterday.

Menzies, the former Australian Test back-rower, announced in the summer that at the age of 39, this will be his final season. And he crossed twice in the first-half as the French side raced into a comfortable 22-2 lead that looked like being more than enough.

But Michael Dobson ensured a dramatic finish, the halfback crossing for the first of four second-half tries for the home side that put the game back in the balance. Brent Webb, making his debut after signing from Leeds Rhinos in the off-season, went over late on for the Dragons to put the result beyond doubt, ensuring the French side started the new season with a bang.

Elsewhere yesterday, title favourites Warrington Wolves put Castleford Tigers to the sword in a 42-24 victory.
