This fixture is getting overlooked a bit as attentions have turned more to Warrington & Leeds home games.

Dragons hooker Ian Henderson is out after a 1 game ban.

Be disappointed if we can't get the job done in Perpi,bearing in mind all their injuries and suspensions.

Flying over tomorrow for some sun (hopefully),beer & RL Smile - is there a better combination.

Henderson isn't banned he's been cleared to play. A great chance here to show we are a threat this year- never easy to get the two points in France.

Enjoy the trip.

I think this is a massive test. Travelling down to South France and getting a result is a massive challenge. It will show if they want to make amends for the poor performance against Batley.

A much improved performance from the Batley match is needed for us to get anywhere near a win tomoz. Our defence against HKR and Cas was very poor in patches but the saving grace was theirs was dreadful, can't see Catalan gifting us easy points like they did.

The big question is which Fartown team will turn up ? if the one that beat Wigan, Lids and Saints have made the journey to France, we've a great chance, if not we're gonna struggle.

I await the outcome with baited breath.

Fantastic result tonight. Not only against them on their own patch but we were down to 12 men for last 30mins.

Hate Childs, totally inept, hope that's the last we see of him this season.

An amazing result. I know Cats were missing a fair few players including their superstar, but to beat them in their backyard with 12 men for most of the second half is fantastic. Hope Robbo doesn't get a ban, but if he does, can we leave Grix at full back and Leroy at centre and think of another plan for a partner to Danny B?

Shoulder charge off the ball, I think.

Great win & a great game.Some solid hits going in and and some good footy played by both sides.Plus that little dust up between the players,all adds to the occasion.

We we sat right in front of that Leroy 'try',and were convinced he grounded that.Having VR every time at Catalans makes a lot of difference.

Started to get it wider as the game wore on,and it paid dividends in the end.There was some poor decision making by certain players at times.I don't believe we are tackling as strong as were in the early rounds,we need to get back to that.We are getting knocked backwards in the collision more now,and players with good footwork are stepping around our first contact.


Lunt was yet again class in his spells.

Weather down here has been bl··dy awful.

I didn't see a sending off in what Robinson did, But Childs is a very poor referee and could they have watched that video for any longer, justice done in the end against all the odds, not many have come away from there with a win, Well done whole team, I can see where DL is coming from with the forwards, but Catalan have a big rough pack and they seem to know that they are going to get the calls, so they push it to the limit, I would think Anderson will be reasonably happy with that.

Unfortunately the screen was off for the Luke incident,and as we were following the ball,didn´t really notice the incident.It was the TJs call though I reckon.

If Luke cops a ban,then who replaces him at scrum half v Warrinton is going to be a big call.Switching players around hasnt always come off before.

Wardle could also be in trouble for a shoulder charge- and I think it was koppy also.
If robbo is out we have two choices- jake Connor gets a debut or grix to 7, smurph fullback and Dawson on the wing. Would rather have grix at 1 able to join the line as we will need attacking options against wire I think. Give Connor a go - an unknown entity for wire might work, connor has a bery good kicking game and we would still have brough and grix to go to.

According to the new ref twitter account @rflreferees #asktheref whilst time was off for the injured player the video ref instructed robbos tackle was contact with the head which is why the red was issued.

There is footage of the incident in the highlights at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veRQnctaDII. (Résumé Dragons Catalans vs Huddersfield (Round 13)) To my mind there does seem to be head contact, although quite possibly purely accidental. It is at about the 4:25 mark of the highlights, and better seen in the second slow motion replay. The first replay is nowhere near as clear.

There may have been head to head contact there was certainly no arm or shoulder to head contact. Never ever a sending off, bearing in mind the no try to Leroy and the reluctance to give his later try you wonder what the VR was watching and what his agenda was?

Ganson has a big job on his hands, I understand Cummings used to instruct refs what to look for in each team, which to me seems completely wrong as you end up with different reffing for each side. If a ref is for example harsh on holding down in the ruck he should be harsh for both teams. That doesn't happen far too often

Spot, on Giantdee, I couldn't agree more. Plus it seems like both players recoil equally from the collision, which to me means neither anticipated it, let alone meant it.
