Trent Robinson: 'We won a tight game'

Catalan Dragons coach Trent Robinson is hoping the 13-10 victory over Hull KR will help spark his side's season back into life.

It looked as though the Dragons were headed for their third successive defeat as they trailed 10-6 with just five minutes to play, but a Clint Greenshields try and a penalty and drop goal from Scott Dureau saw them snatch victory.

"We won a tight game," said Robinson, whose side had lost to Salford and Wigan in their previous two matches.

"It was awful weather and I believe it has been like that for a while. We left France where it was 30 degrees and sunshine so as you'd expect, we don't train often in the wet conditions.

"But we were disappointed with the way we handled the ball. Having said that, there were plenty of positives for both sides to take from this game.

"We haven't defended like that for a long time and hopefully that will provide us with the spark we have lacked in recent weeks.

"There was plenty of energy and we scrambled well with good intent."

Rovers coach Craig Sandercock admitted he was proud of his side's efforts in adversity in the defeat.

He was down to 16 men after Kris Welham broke his leg in the fifth minute, and then Rhys Lovegrove ruptured his medial ligaments nine minutes into the second half to compound Sandercock's problems.


"I am disappointed to have lost but I am proud of what we produced against a class Catalan side," Sandercock said.

"It was a close game shown by the scoreline and it could have gone either way.

"It's not down to me, it's down to the players, they are the ones producing on the park. For some reason it fell apart tonight.

"Everything went against us but I couldn't be prouder of the attitude and desire they showed.

"I am disappointed with our discipline as we were on the wrong side of an 8-3 penalty count in the second half.

He added of the injury blows: "The injuries sustained by Kris and Rhys are serious.

"Kris has broken his leg while Rhys has ruptured his medial ligaments and could be out for eight to 10 weeks. We'll replace them and do our best next week."
