Apr 18, 2017 - Dragons back to form as Salford whalloped...
Catalans Dragons (14) 38
Salford Red Devils (0) 6
T : Justin Carney
Vincent Duport took full advantage of the sun shining in Perpignan (finally) to help himself to a hat-trick against high flying Salford.
The Carneys et al came over in top form and I had predicted a close encounter on our forum. But my punditry skills were way off the mark as the visitors started slowly and were well off the pace even before half time.
The second half started with former Dragon Todd Carney dropping the ball (I am afraid to say I did giggle) before more Dragons dominance.
Justin Carney showed his pace to stem the flow momentarily but after Tony Gigot had gone the length of the field to add some gloss it was party time amongst the gloss adding field goals.

T : Aaron Murphy, Jake Mamo, Jermaine McGillvary, Sam Wood
Dragons Catalans (12) 29
John Dobson was our man in the cold at Fartown last evening...
Poor game. It was cold and, first half especially, very windy which didn't help. First half was very even in terms of both sides being equally useless. Nice try from Gigot - big step off the left that left Hinchcliffe flat on his face - and one from Wiliame late on.
UK Cat of our forum made the trip as well and had this to say...
Went to the game tonight, freezing cold and plenty of errors so was abit scrappy, we had a strong 15 minutes at the start of the 2nd half and the giants never looked like recovering, score line flatters them a little as they scored on the final hooter.
So all in all a good couple of points gained after some dodgy results.
Giants : Mamo, McGillvary, S.Wood, Murphy, McIntosh, Brough, Gaskell, Ikahihifo, Hinchcliffe, Wakeman, Symonds, Mellor, Clough

Apr 10, 2017 - Team for trip to Huddersfield.
A couple of seasons ago this would have been a key game at the top of the Super League table.
Its a sign of the competitive nature of rugby league (ahem!) that these two now find themselves adrift of the levels required.
Both sides are putting out the best that is available to them and after the win at Leigh, the Dragons coaching team will have bought themselves a bit more leeway.
Here is your Dracs line up...
Apr 10, 2017 - Dragons end losing streak at Leigh
Leigh Centurions (8) 26
T : Curtis Naughton, Dayne Weston, Greg McNally, Sam Hopkins
Catalans Dragons (28) 37
T : Iain Thornley, Brayden Wiliame, Krisnan Inu, Louis Anderson, Richie Myler, Tony Gigot
Can we say that this was a must win match?
I suppose so as we had been saying it for a couple of weeks with Catalans in total free fall. The controversial return of Tony Gigot was a catalyst as the visiting side got over their attacking shyness.
A stellar first half saw them almost home and hosed before a late Leigh comeback to take a little gloss off the scoreline.
Leigh : McNally, McNally, Crooks, Brown, Dawson, Reynolds, Ridyard, Hock, Higham, Hopkins, Vea, Stewart, Hansen
Dragons : Gigot, Thornley, Inu, Wiliame, Duport, Walsh, Myler, Moa, Aiton, Casty, Anderson, Garcia, Baitieri
Referee: Jack Smith
Apr 10, 2017 - Dreadful Dragons slayed by Trinity
Catalans Dragons (6) 18
T : Ben Garcia, Krisnan Inu, Fouad Yaha
Wakefield Trinity (16) 38
T : Ben Jones-Bishop 3, Tom Johnstone 2, Joe Arundel, Matty Ashurst
Some bang average defending saw Dragons beaten easily at home by Wakefield.
Forum regular Catalanglais takes up the story...
I was there.
It is sometimes claimed that a wretched performance is due to the whole team,but I agree with our coach that certain players are not performing.
Myler and Walsh were outstanding on Saturday.
My marks out of 10 are Bosc 6 Thornley 5 Inu 5 Duport 2 Yaha 2 Myler 9 Walsh 8 Casty 4 Aiton 7 Moa 4 Horo 3 Anderson 4-though clearly injured- Garcia 4 -Interchange Bousquet 7 DaCosta 6 Baitieri 3 and Simon 5.
It is no use havng half backs who are creating over laps when our centres just run straight at the opposition and never pass. The coaching staff have got to explain why Yaha thinks it is always his job to go straight for the opposing centre and thus give away 3 tries. After the third such try.
Myler put Yaha right about this and the problem disappeared.As I have said before certain players have reached the end of the road-Casty and Duport especially-and cannot change.Others like Yaha need a lot of individual tuition.In the short term we must abandon our expansive game and try to grind out results. If we are so desperate that Duport has to play he must be put on the wing and told to stay there unless there is a very clear 2 to one against him.
The score should have been a lot worse-their left wing dropped the ball 3 times with the line at his mercy.Seguier -sorry if the spelling is wrong -was very impressive in the match against Lezignan and should be given a chance.All in all this was the third worst performance since 2012 and the most depressing in the sense that it is hard to see how we will not be in the middle eights this year. Finally our basic fitness levels -with some exceptions- are too low.
Dragons : Bosc, Yaha, Inu, Duport, Thornley, Walsh, Myler, Moa, Aiton, Casty, Anderson, Horo, Garcia,
Wakefield : Grix, Jones-Bishop, Arundel, Tupou, Johnstone, Williams, Finn, Fifita, Wood, Allgood, Ashurst, Kirmond, Arona
Referee: Gareth Hewer
Sin bin: Iain Thornley
