Catalan boss Steve McNamara believes his side can take plenty of positives Saturday’s performance against Wigan.
The Dragons were level at 10-10 around the hour mark, but the Warriors pulled away late on to secure a 32-10 success.
McNamara said: “I thought it was a really tough game. It was a fantastic arm wrestle for 60 to 65 minutes, there was not a lot to choose between the two teams – in fact I think we were two tries to one up.
“It was really pleasing that we were in that contest but really disappointed with the last 15 minutes. I don’t think we deserved that scoreline.
“Having said that, if you give Wigan those opportunities they’ll take them and that’s what they did. I think that our performance today was a whole lot better than our win over Leigh last weekend.
“They prepared really well all week – clearly we had a number of players missing for a variety of reasons – but I think it showed today that our preparation had been good, it’s just disappointing that the scoreboard went where it went for us today because I don’t think we deserved that.
“We can take a lot of positives out of that and hopefully we can improve next week as much as we have this week going into next week’s game against St Helens.”
