Catalan boss Laurent Frayssinous admitted his team were completely outclassed as Hull raced into the last eight of the Challenge Cup on Friday.
The Dragons had a night to forget, crashing 62-0 to end their hopes of place in the quarter-finals.
“It was men against boys – defensively and offensively they were way too good for us, it’s as simple as that,” said Frayssinous.
“There’s a few harsh and good lessons for our kids to learn.
“Losing Richie Myler and Julian Bousquet, two more of our experienced players, made it even tougher. We had a lack of interchanges because of the injuries.
“The Challenge Cup has finished for us and it’s finished in a tough way. The cup was a goal for us and we wanted to put out our best team.
“I hope we will have some players back next week, but today we may lose at least another four or five.”
