Catalan coach Laurent Frayssinous praised his side's character as the Dragons secured their fourth consecutive win with a 37-24 scuccess over Hull KR.

Leon Pryce was instrumental in the victory while Elliott Whitehead and Michael Oldfield scored two tries apiece as Catalan continued to rebuild their season after a shocking start.

"Tonight is the third consecutive game [in the league] for nine of our players, and it was their third victory," Frayssinous said.

"The team showed its character tonight and that makes me a proud coach."

However, Frayssinous knows there is still much for his side to work on after they trailed 18-16 at the interval.

He said: "The end of the first half was disappointing, to concede three tries especially after we had led by sixteen points. We needed to deal with that better.

"We played well tonight at home and we need to transfer that into our away games and play in that style away from [Stade Gilbert] Brutus."

Rovers failed to back up their derby victory against Hull FC on Thursday and it turned into a nightmare trip to the south of France as prop Justin Poore was also taken from the field with a serious-looking knee injury.

Too good

Despite scoring four tries through Greg Eden, Jordan Cox and two from Omari Caro, the East Yorkshire club ultimately ran out of ideas - a fact acknowledged by coach Craig Sandercock.

"Catalan were too good for us today," he said. "They ran a little bit harder than us and tackled a little bit harder than us, and in the end they were too good.

"It was a good end of the first half for us. It was important that we started the second half well, but we gave away a penalty and Catalan got a try and our

momentum stalled after that.

"Our game against Hull FC was a tough game, but the boys recovered pretty well and we turned up here to play.

"Losing Justin Poore probably hurt us more than anything. He's at the hospital right now so we're not quite sure how bad it is."
