Leeds coach Brian McDermott hit out at the high penalty count against his side in their hard-fought 27-12 victory over Catalans Dragons.
Ryan Bailey was sent off eight minutes into the second half for a high shoulder charge on Thomas Bosc, but the Rhinos held out to inflict a first home defeat of the season on the Dragons.
McDermott said: "I don't think the sending off had a bearing on the result of the game to be honest with you, but it showed how much character we have in the squad.
"Catalans get awarded more penalties than anyone else in the competition, and they have done for the last two years.
"I coached the London team for four years and they were awarded the least amount of penalties for four consecutive years. That is a big issue when you come to Catalans.
"To be consistently awarded the most penalties when they play at home, I think that would need addressing. At one point the penalty count was 15-3, I thought we did remarkably well to overcome that.
"I'd like to be clear, I don't think that Catalans play well due to them getting penalties, they are a very good team."
The final penalty count was 16-8, but Catalans coach Laurent Frayssinous said: "I think if you watch the game back all the penalties were deserved, they came here and tried to slow us down.
"They were cautioned twice for this and I have spoken to the referees about why this happened with no sin-binning. It is their call and we can talk about it further in the week."
