Michael Monaghan admitted Catalan were outclassed by high-flying Salford on Friday.
The Red Devils ran in nine tries on their way to a 50-12 victory and the Dragons’ interim boss had no complaints about the result.
“The scoreboard doesn’t look pretty – it’s never enjoyable to be on the end of a scoreline like that,” said Monaghan.
“As coaches we need to take the score out of it and look at what we did on the field. I thought our young kids showed some promise, but there are some things we can move forward with.
“There is plenty of stuff we need to work on and we can’t feel sorry for ourselves. We have got to get back to work quickly because we have got another game on Monday.
“We had a fair challenge today against a team near the top of the table.”
