Catalan Dragons head coach Laurent Frayssinous singled out Elliott Whitehead for special praise after the dramatic 23-22 Super League win over Bradford Bulls.

Whitehead is a former Bulls player and returned to Odsal to haunt his former employers with an all-action display that helped the French club all but confirm their place in the play-offs.

Frayssinous said afterwards: "I'm really happy for Elliott in particular, he had a lot of emotion in the build-up to the game. The situation wasn't ideal for him but we all stuck around him as a group and they helped him to perform.

"He was looking forward to the game, but he was definitely nervous too, you could tell. We told him to leave the emotion in the dressing room and perform like he has been doing over the last few weeks, because he's been one of our best players.

"You could see his effort though, things like an interception after he's played nearly 80 minutes show how important he is to us."

Bulls counterpart Francis Cummins added: "We knew we were going to give away some size to them in the forwards department, but we didn't come and meet them enough like we did in the first half. We invited them to run at us and let them march down the field.

"You can't give a side that much possession. We scrambled really well and we worked really hard, but you can't allow a team like that to have so much ball on their terms, and we need to be able to pass and play. We lost our way in the second half."
