KEIRON Cunningham praised his side’s effort on Saturday as they defeated Catalans Dragons 28-24.
“I thought our effort was outstanding,” he said. “I thought we were the better team and if we had not have won the game I think that would have been undeserved.
“We had plenty of opportunities, we took plenty of them and wasted a few and I’m glad we brought the game home, It was a true gritty performance from the club.
“We knew it was going to be tough; it has not been a happy hunting ground for us over here in France over a number of years. Things were stacked up against us after a couple of poor losses but I am proud of what the players did and I really think they deserved the win.
“The game was open in the first half, there were lots of tries scored but both teams tightened up in the second.
“Catalans had a good crack at it but I thought we were a little bit better tonight.”
He added: “Theo has been brilliant since he came to the club. You forget how young he is, he still is a baby and lots of learning to do but he competes really hard.
“Not only does he set up the match-winning try but he scrambles at the end to make a defensive play and saves a try.
“There was a lot of fight from the club tonight.”
