Catalans 1-6-7 combo to get better and better

Catalans coach Laurent Frayssinous says there is more to come from his trio of playmakers following the return of Tony Gigot.

Gigot, 26, missed the first seven games of the season through suspension, and the Dragons have won both their games since his return to the side.

The France international, playing at full-back, linked up well with half-back pair Luke Walsh and Richie Myler to follow last week’s win at Leigh with a 29-22 win against Huddersfield on Wednesday night.

Frayssinous said: “Tony is a fantastic player. Structure wise, he puts people in the right position at the right time in defence and attack.

“He’s very smart, he knows where he needs to be.

“His fitness is not where I would like it to be yet.

“The combination between Richie, Walshy and Tony will get better and better. They asked some great questions with the ball.”

The win was more comfortable for Catalans the scoreline suggested, and they will now enjoy a few extra days off before facing high-flying Salford in Perpignan on Monday.

Frayssinous added: “We won’t whinge about that. For once, Catalans got more days off than the opposition!

“I will not motivate my players by saying we’ve got two extra days off. It’s just about what we can produce on the field on Monday.

“I know Salford will bring a quality team and along with Castleford, are one of the two best teams in Super League at the moment.”
