Teams

London Broncos coach Tony Rea admitted his side had only themselves to blame after losing 30-24 to Catalan Dragons at Esher.

The home side led for much of the game but the French side took advantage of their mistakes to snatch the victory with two late tries from Zeb Taia.

He said: "We were at our best in terms of our effort and energy but our execution let us down from start to finish.

"I think every player across the board made an error at some stage and that is very frustrating.

"You are happy to lose if you have given your best but I do not think we did tonight. We stayed strong as a team and had a fantastic attitude but that was not enough.

"I thought Catalan played error-free rugby for the whole game and that proved the difference."

Scrappy

The win hoisted the French side to the top of the Super League table, albeit possibly only for 24 hours, and coach Laurent Frayssinous praised their battling qualities.

He said: "It was a very scrappy game and we were certainly not at our best.

"But I said before the game that the team that showed the most hunger would be the team that won and that was us.

"I thought our forwards were immense and that was a real strength for us, especially as the game wore on in the second half.

"Easter is always a tough period for us because of the travel and the most important thing was just to get the two points."
