Super League: Catalans Dragons boss reveals what is missing as French side fall at home to Leigh

Catalans Dragons head coach Steve McNamara was left reeling after his side endured their fifth loss in six games.

The Dragons fell to a 10-2 defeat at the hands of the Leigh Leopards in Perpignan, France.

Tom Amone scored the only try with Matt Moylan kicking three goals, while Arthur Mourgue slotted a single penalty for the Dragons.

It was a scrappy opening quarter but Dragons full-back Mourgue got the scoreboard ticking before Moylan responded.

Amone forced his way over from short range for an 8-2 half-time lead and Moylan kicked a 54th-minute penalty to complete the scoring.

Speaking after the game, McNamara said: “We’re all very disappointed, we look a team that is lacking in confidence and looks nervous in attack.

“We’re not scoring enough points even though once again we had enough possession and field position to execute some plays but we couldn’t do it.

“That is the frustrating part, we know what is wrong and in practice we are confident and composed but that clearly didn’t go onto the pitch tonight.

“We didn’t put enough pressure on them, our completion rate and execution were poor, we looked nervous and that’s my job as coach to get us out of this period.

“We’re putting a lot of effort in but it’s not going in the right direction, we look blunt and not threatening at all.

“We have a lot of changes in personnel this year, teams ebb and flow in confidence in both attack and defence and although we only conceded one try we weren’t as physical in defence as we usually are.”
