Monaghan disappointed with Dragons’ poor execution

Catalans Dragons assistant coach Michael Monaghan felt that last night’s game against Warrington was far from being a classic.

The Catalans lost 28-16, and, although it was close right to the end, the former Warrington hooker believes that neither side really found their best form.

“To be honest, I didn’t think it was a great game,” he told Wolves supporters in the Platinum Lounge at the Halliwell Jones after the match.

“Both teams were a little bit off. But it was a close game at least, entertaining for the crowd, it went right down to the wire there.

“So there was some good stuff, but I felt both teams were a little bit off.”

Catalans had a great chance to score a spectacular try in the second half, when Morgan Escare spilled the ball before a flowing move could be finished off.

Incidents like that have been typical of the Dragons’ season so far, according to Monaghan.

“It’s a little bit how our season’s been,” he said.

“A couple of games we’ve lost in the last minute, and plays like that we’ve had too many of this year.

“It’s those type of things that have got us where we are at the moment.”
