Laurent Frayssinous: Became worried by Broncos' fightback

A win is a win, and the two points is all that matters. In fact, for the first 60 minutes I was very happy.

Catalan coach Laurent Frayssinous admitted his nerves were jangling as the Dragons held off a late rally to earn a 28-22 triumph in London.

The French side were coasting at 28-4 with 68 minutes on the clock, only for the Broncos to run in three late tries and leave the visitors clinging on.

But hold on they did, pulling themselves six points clear of the Londoners, who occupy the final Super League relegation spot.

"I was very worried in the last 15 minutes as London seemed as though they could score from anywhere," said Frayssinous.

"It might have been a lack of concentration on our part - we knew London had to come at us and they did.

"A few calls went against us and we were up against it. But a win is a win, and the two points is all that matters. In fact, for the first 60 minutes I was very happy.

"Our pack of forwards played very well, and we were very clinical when we had the ball."

In a frantic final 12 minutes Mason Caton-Brown claimed a second score, with further Broncos tries from Nesi Mataitonga and Denny Solomona leaving the Catalans hanging on.

Progress

London coach Tony Rea said: "You are never happy with a loss, but our fight to the death was impressive.

"I thought there was a lack of confidence at the start, and we made too many errors. But we are showing good progress which is obviously very important to us.

"We are a team and we will succeed if we stick together. As a team we are moving forward, we just need individuals to keep improving.

"But if we keep improving and progressing week by week we will definitely get where we want to be."
