Full-back Jamie Shaul missed the birth of his first child in order to help Hull secure a first away win over Catalans Dragons for six years, the Super League club have revealed.

The 23-year-old scored one of the Airlie Birds' seven tries in a 38-10 victory at the Stade Gilbert Brutus to maintain their 100 per cent record at the start of the new season.

In a tweet, Hull FC said: "Special mention to @jamieshaul and partner, Chloe, who have had their first child tonight! Daddy missed the birth to play!"

Hull chartered their own plane to Perpignan and arrived back at Leeds/Bradford Airport just before midnight on Saturday.
