Catalan Dragons coach Trent Robinson was a satisfied man after his side defeated Salford City Reds 40-18 at Stade Gilbert Brutus.

Robinson said: "I thought in the first half we were very clinical and I thought that other than the first try that was from a kick we defended really well and that paid dividends with the points we scored.

"We made some errors in the second half and had some indiscipline in defence that allowed Salford back into the game but we defended our line really, really well and I think we can gain some confidence from that."

Robinson reserved special praise for loanee Ben Fisher.

"Ben was superb out there tonight, he's a tradesman and he came in and moved the ball around really well.

"It's a credit to him that he has been able to fit in so quickly. He had a great game for us tonight."

Robinson was also clearly proud that he could field 11 French players.

"I've talked about our depth of squad this year and I don't want to see a difference whoever is in the side, the boys who came in today did a great job, Cyrille Gossard was only playing his second game of the year did well as did Michael Simon who was playing his first game of the season.

Problems

"Salford played well and, give them their dues, they've come here after some good results and they're playing well. They caused us some problems at times, but I feel that we defended our own line really, really well."

Salford coach Phil Veivers added: "I've just left a very disappointed changing room, the boys feel like they've under-achieved today.

"We spoke in the week about trying to take the momentum away from them and slow down their tempo, but we weren't able to do it today.

"If you look at the two teams on the whole we probably weren't at the races today, and across the board they probably were.

"At 6-0 I thought we were well in it and in the first 10 or 15 minutes we caused them some problems with some offloads and our passing and we put them under pressure.

"But to come off scoring a try and not collect the kick off is a cardinal sin and they went five sets straight after that and scored two tries. That is poor on our behalf."
