Frayssinous furious after Catalans’ draw

Catalans Dragons coach Laurent Frayssinous was left fuming by the way his team’s game against Salford ended on Saturday.

The scoreline was an almost incredible 40-40, but Frayssinous felt that his team were the victims of a refereeing mistake right at the end of the game.

Morgan Escare was penalised for an incorrect play-the-ball, and Frayssinous was convinced that the call cost his team victory.

“We should have had one more point in the league – we should have six points tonight and we have only five, so I don’t know what the RFL will do because it happens every season for the Dragons,” he told reporters after the game.

“My thoughts are that it is not a penalty, I saw the last four rounds and it has happened that the teams go back and play the ball.

“It is not acceptable, the same as it is not acceptable that there is a late tackle on Todd Carney that has left him in the hospital with a broken rib.

“Defensively it is very frustrating for us, to concede 40 points and the way that we conceded them. We knew Salford are a great team with the ball but it is hard to swallow to concede 40 points at home.”
