Catalan head coach Laurent Frayssinous praised returnee Tony Gigot after the Dragons triumphed 37-26 at Leigh on Friday.
Gigot scored a try on his first appearance of the season, having had a two-year ban for an “inappropriate exchange” with an anti-doping official reduced to three months.
“The first half was very good offensively and defensively – we were clinical with the ball and defensively we showed the right attitude,” said Frayssinous. “It was a pretty good performance.
“But on the negative side, Luke Burgess looks to have suffered a knee injury, which doesn’t look good. Also Jason Baitieri has already got a plaster on his wrist and it looks like it’s broken.
“It was good to have Tony Gigot back – he is a great player and he will get better and better. Maybe we needed to be under pressure to perform and that’s how good teams react.”
