The Catalan Dragons scrum-half Scott Dureau was taken to hospital for scans after complaining of double vision in his side's 32-32 draw at Widnes yesterday. Dureau, winner of several individual awards last year, played his first game of the season last week after an operation to remove a brain tumour from behind his eye.

A club spokesman said later: "Scott is fine. He got a knock in the game and that gave him a little bit of double vision. It's not connected to what happened before."

Widnes came from behind with a late try by Frank Winterstein, his second, and two goals from Jack Owens, who also scored two tries. This season's exciting full-back discovery, Morgan Escare, got a hat-trick for the Catalans.

Leaders Wigan had a scare at Wakefield, where they trailed the lowly Wildcats until the 73rd minute. Tries from Lee Mossop and Darrell Goulding sealed Wigan's 36-23 victory.

Hull Kingston Rovers also left it late to wrap up a 28-18 win over Bradford that took them back into the top eight. The Robins trailed for most of the match until long-range tries from Lincoln Withers and Craig Hall nudged them in front and Withers' late second clinched victory.
