Aug 21, 2017 - More humiliation for woeful Dracs

Catalans edged nearer and nearer relegation with a humiliating home hammering from Leigh.

 

We are discussing the implications for the club and players on the forum, please have your say.

 

  

Aug 14, 2017 - Awful first half sees Dragons out of the game

Warrington Wolves (30) 52

T : Stefan Ratchford 2, Matty Russell, Declan Patton, Ryan Atkins 2, Tom Lineham 2, Peta Hiku
G : Declan Patton 8

Dragons Catalans (6) 24

T : Rémi Casty, Krisnan Inu 2, Lewis Tierney
G : Luke Walsh 4

 

"What is wrong with this team?" is a question posed on our forum this morning...

Looks fairly simple. No spirit, no backbone, no fitness and not enough desire.

Dragons are now staring the million pound match in the face after a woeful first half at Warrington.... Again.

A draw involving London might yet be the kingmaking result to keep us up, but the end of this horrid season can't come soon enough.

Again we went in with low expectations and again the Dragons showed we weren't wrong.

The next two games are now key in saving the season.

Still we sit here thinking, at some point it will click and we will hit our straps and give someone a pasting.

Still we wait...

Aug 8, 2017 - Dragons drag themselves home in the derby.

What on earth has happened to Catalans Dragons Rugby League football club? Its now just 2 wins from 8  for Les Dracs who stuttered over the line in Le Derby against London Broncos over the weekend.

Granted London will have been full of confidence and are playing well. But we should be beating them 10 times out of 10 with the squad we have at our disposal and its embarassing to see the depths we have managed to stoop to during this campaign.

At the end of the season (hopefully without a million pound match appearance) we can discuss over on the forum whether Steve McNamara has made any sort of impact on the squad and whether Laurent Fraysinnous would have been able to achieve anything more and keep us out of the middle 8s.

For now, I suppose we can be grateful that we have a win on the board and its now key to keep close to Warrington next weekend in the hope of grabbing something unlikely.

Jul 26, 2017 - Dragons lose despite numerical advantage

  

 

Catalans Dragons (18) 24

: Lucas Albert, Tony Gigot, Fouad Yaha, essai de pénalité
: Tony Gigot 4

Castleford Tigers (16) 32

: Jy Hitchcox 2, Zak Hardaker, Greg Minikin
: Luke Gale 5, Zak Hardaker

 

A squirel tackle by former Dragon Kevin Larroyer was one of many talking points as these two player out a high scoring match at the Gilbert Brutus.

Both sets of players, coaches and supporters went away thinking they were hard done by in a match that was ultimately settled by a wonderful piece of Jy Hitchcox skill to aerobatically score in the corner.

Up to that point the Dragons were ahead on the scoreboard and two players up on the park. However this is a team that has forgotten how to win and they never really looked like holding on.

Jul 26, 2017 - Same old story as Catalans run out of gas

  

 

Saint-Helens (20) 46

T : Théo Fages, Alex Walmsley, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Jonny Lomax, Mark Percival, Luke Thompson, Ryan Morgan
G : Mark Percival 9

Catalans Dragons (18) 28

T : Justin Horo 2, Luke Walsh, Tony Gigot, Richie Myler
G : Luke Walsh 4

 

Steve McNamara will be pulling his hair out after this woeful capitulation by Dragons condemned them to the middle 8s, although I think we knew that already.

In the game up until almost 3/4 of the way through we contrived to ship 7 tries in total to a Saints side who have hardly been dynamite.

With only league leaders Castleford at home to play before the likes of London and Halifax come on our radar, we will be looking to show a bit more guts in games.

 Lewis Tierney and  Romain Navarrete have joined the Dragons from Wigan Warriors.

Both are on loan until the end of the Super League or Middle 8s season.

We wish them well.

Jul 26, 2017 - Dragons wilt against Wigan

  

 

There were signs of improvement for Dragons in this one but ultimately it was the same old story against Wigan in Perpignan.

 

Catalans Dragons (4) 10

: Vincent Duport 2
: Luke Walsh

Wigan Warriors (8) 32

: Joe Burgess 3, George Williams, Sam Tomkins
: George Williams 6

A good crowd saw the Warriors and Dragons enjoy a closely fought first 40 minutes in this one.

However the Dragons fell away after the interval leaving question marks over their fitness and ability to last 80 minutes of rugby.

George Burgess scored a hat-trick of ties and added six goals.

Vincent Duport was the only Catalans player to cross the white wash.
