Catalans coach Laurent Frayssinous heaped praise on Thomas Bosc following the 50-12 Challenge Cup win over Hunslet.

The France international was included in a young Dragons side that prevailed comfortably despite losing hooker Ian Henderson to a red card with just 27 minutes played.

Bosc was influential throughout, having a hand in four of the French side's tries and scoring one himself at the death to add to his seven goals and cap a fine performance.

"We had a few young kids in the side with no experience so I decided to play Thomas so he could look after them and set the right example. I was very pleased with him.

"All credit to Hunslet for never giving up. We were a bit soft on the ball at times but we did enough to reach the next round, which is the most important thing.

"I need to watch a replay of the sending-off. I know it is forbidden to shoulder charge but it is pretty tough for a referee to decide whether to send a player off or put him on report.

Consistent

"I just want the call to be consistent. If the replay shows Ian deserved to be sent off I'll have no problem with that."

Hunslet coach Barry Eaton said: "The boys put in a fantastic effort because there was a massive 75-25 possession difference in the first half and 60-40 in the second.

"I am perplexed at some of the reasons for that, but the Catalans were very quick to grab an opportunity with both hands.

"We were held up over the line twice, had two tries ruled out and they scored from two interceptions, so my lads put in a good stint and I've told them I am proud of their efforts."
