Frayssinous anguished after Catalan win

Catalan Dragons coach Laurent Frayssinous had a haunted look at the press conference following his team’s weekend win over London.

Although the Frenchman was pleased that his side had collected two Super League points, his manner suggested he was far from happy.

“We were lucky. Obviously the performance wasn’t good enough to win,” he told reporters.

“I’m not happy with the performance, I’m happy with the two points.

“We came here to win the two points and we have done it. Even with a lot of luck, we have done it, so that’s the main point.

“But the second point is the performance. We’ve shared this with the players, about how we perform with our strengths and weaknesses.

“At the moment, there’s a lack of patience with the ball. We try and score every time. We created enough opportunities to win by a couple of tries, but we did not convert them.”

When asked if his team had been complacent, due to London’s lowly league position, the Catalan coach was honest.

“Yes,” he admitted.

“It’s always hard work when you play a team without a win. You need to work hard to score points. We tried to take shortcuts today.

“No matter the opposition in the Super League, you have to work hard to score tries.”
