Vincent Duport scored a try as Catalan defeated Leeds

Leeds' Challenge Cup final build-up ended with a narrow 38-34 defeat to the Catalan Dragons in Perpignan.

Following on from Warrington's heavy loss to London on Friday night, it looked as though both Wembley-bound sides would be heading to the capital on the back of heavy defeats when Leeds trailed 18-0 and 32-12. But a stunning turnaround ensured the game was only won in the dying seconds, despite the home side having held a 20-point lead with 20 minutes remaining.

Setaimata Sa, Scott Dureau, Remi Casty (two), Vincent Duport and Daryl Millard were the try-scorers for the Dragons, while Shaun Lunt, Ben Jones-Bishop (two), Ryan Hall, Jimmy Keinhorst and Jamie Jones-Buchanan touched down for the visitors.
