Paul Wellens scored two tries on his 400th appearance for Saints

Francis Meli and Makinson put Saints in the ascendancy and while centre Morgan Escare helped Catalan back into the match midway through the first half, his converted try was to prove mere consolation.

Makinson crossed again just after half-time, while Wellens - on his 400th Super League appearance for St Helens - made the game safe with two tries as the Lancashire club followed up their impressive wins over Castleford and local rivals Wigan with another two points.
