Jun 14, 2017 - Cut and paste headline from previous weeks...

  

 

Catalans Dragons (6) 12

: Tony Gigot, Sam Moa
G : Luke Walsh 2

Giants Huddersfield (22) 56

: Aaron Murphy, Shannon Wakeman, Danny Brough 2, Jake Mamo 4, Jermaine McGillvary 2
G : Danny Brough, Martyn Ridyard 7

 

The embattled coaches Guisset and Monaghan looked beaten as they faced the media following this latest debacle. 

A season that is long since over and now will only have focus to avoid relegation. In recent seasons the club has done so much and got so much right that this disintegration is both hard to fathom and take. 

This game was more than over by the break and the habit we have of folding away from home has taken root at Stade GB. We need a result from somewhere, anywhere...

The rumours that a new coach is on the way have been tarnished by news out of France that the club fluttered its eyelids at Tony Smith only for him to stick with Warrington. That would have been out of the frying pan and into the fire...

Now Steve McNamara, ever unpopular with supporters for all clubs for some reason is being courted to come back from NZ Warriors and take on the task of turning the club from famine back to feast. 

 

 

Jun 6, 2017 - Disappointing Dragons hit new low

Widnes Vikings (12) 26

T : Jack Buchanan 2, Rhys Hanbury, Corey Thompson
G : Rhys Hanbury 2, Corey Thompson 3

Catalans Dragons (6) 6

T :  Sam Moa 
G :  Luke Walsh 

Catalans showed their old fragility and away insecurities in a performance which would have had Laureny Fraysinnous smiling from his sun lounger and saying "Try blaming me now". 

Despite being in this match at half time the second half saw us fade away to finish as pale as the blue of our cup kit. 

Serious questions will be asked now about what on earth has happened at the Gilbert Brutus after the we'd hoped for much better when the trouble making etrangers from last season were moved on.

How I would like to see a bludgeoning Dave Taylor run now... 

 

  

May 30, 2017 - Reserves knocked out of playoffs ending season.

Limoux (28) 42

T : Rouch 2, Beteille, Palavi 2, Yesa, A. Alberola
G : Guiraud 6, Miloudi 2

Saint-Estève XIII Catalan (12) 34

: Maria, J. Nègre, Khedimi, Jouffret, Mendy, Bergal
G : Jouffret 5

Despite a really positive season in the domestic competition, the Dragons season has been ended in the semi final of Elite 1. 

There has been a number of brilliant performances and plays, many of which you can see in our domestic league forum thread.

Well done lads, let's go one better next season!

May 30, 2017 - Humbling start for new coaching team

  

 

Salford Red Devils (28) 50

: Gareth O'Brien, Josh Jones, Kris Welham, Niall Evalds, Ryan Lannon, Kriss Brining, Rob Lui, Olsi Krasniqi, Mark Flanagan
: Michael Dobson 7

Catalans Dragons (0) 12
T : Vincent Duport, Fouad Yaha
G : Luke Walsh 2

 

If a change in the coaching box was supposed to bring about better fortunes for the Dragons, the first evidence was to the contrary. 

This result and performance also gives Guisset and Monaghan a clear indication of what will be needed to turn the season around. 

With a 28-0 half time arrears it was clear the Dragons neither prepared or started right. 

They were out of the game before giving themselves any chance to be in it, which for fans as well as staff is really upsetting. 

A short turnaround is now in place before the bank holiday Monday encounter with Hull. 

 

May 22, 2017 - Dragons beaten at Magic

  

 

Huddersfield Giants (6) 18

: Lee Gaskell, Sam Rapira, Adam O'Brien
: Martyn Ridyard 3

Catalans Dragons (6) 10

:  Richie Myler ,  Iain Thornley 
G :  Luke Walsh 

 

In an ongoing developing story, Catalans Dragons lost the final game of the reign of Laurent Fraysinnous at Magic Weekend. 

The Dragons lost the game from a position where they should have gone on to win it.

May 22, 2017 - Laurent Fraysinnous leaves the club

Catalans Dragons head coach Laurent Fraysinnous has left the club after a bad 2017 season to date. 

The club is struggling to avoid the middle 8s and was beaten again at the Magic Weekend by fellow strugglers Huddersfield Giants. 

Jerome Guisset will take temporary charge alonside Michael Monaghan. 

The departure sees the end of Fraysinnous time at the club during which time he became the first player to appear for the club with a squad number of one in the first ever match we played. 

We would like to thank Laurent for his efforts at the Gilbert Brutus and wish him well. 

May 15, 2017 - Domestic side are through to the semi finals

A 54-22 win over Albi was enough to ensure a third placed finish in the Elite League this season for Dragons. 

This now puts them into the semi finals with a chance of winning the grand final. 

In a week where the first team hit a new low, this is a positive piece of news for all at the club.
