Huddersfield coach Nathan Brown admitted his side were not quite good enough to beat Catalan Dragons in Perpignan.

"Apart from a couple of players, I thought we weren't quite good enough to beat a good side today," Brown said after the 27-20 defeat.

"Apart from Michael Lawrence and Dale Ferguson, I thought every other player in our team didn't produce a performance they needed to produce.

"It's been a long time since we lost so it's no good slitting our wrists.

"We're halfway through the year and no one is on more points than us and we're in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals so I can't be too hard on the guys. We'd have taken that at the start of the year."

Huddersfield went in front three times thanks to tries from Luke Robinson, Scott Grix and Dale Ferguson and drew level at 20-20 when centre Joe Wardle went over on 71 minutes.

They also had tries from Luke George and Greg Eden disallowed and Brown bemoaned the absence of a video referee.

"It's the only sport in the world that's professional where you have a video referee for one game and don't have it for the others," he said.

"The full-back definitely scored and I don't know whether Luke George knocked on or not. It's not the referee's fault, it the fault of the people who run the game.

"We didn't deserve to win the game but we deserved the right to have a video referee."
