Twelve-man Catalans claimed victory over Toulouse in the first ever Super League game between two French sides.

The home side led 14-6 at the interval thanks to two tries from Fouad Yaha and one from Joe Chan.

Guy Armitage got the visitors on the board before the break but Matt Whitley restored Les Dracs' lead.

Chan was sent off for a high tackle with just under 30 minutes to play and Matty Russell reduced the arrears, but Toulouse could not complete a comeback.

Victory for Steve McNamara's men ended their run of two defeats and gave them a sixth win from their opening eight games.
