I know that French has rightly got his own thread but there was a lot about that game to be pleased about as well as a few niggles. A good start for young Harry but we still seem a bit confused on last tackle plays.

I thought Navarrete was the second best ‘French’ player on the pitch (see what I did there) as well. He had a beltin game when he came on, tackling and running the ball with real purpose.

It was a real positive for me and a real statement by him to try and keep his place for next week and beyond as others return.

Sarginson was my MOM based on overall contribution
(Obviously French caught the eye and was always going to get it for a couple of absolute belters).

Tommy at one point told Sarge to slow it down a bit, he wa like a man possessed.

He’ll be a miss next year. It’s a player like Sarginson that sets a standard when it comes to effort, desire and bravery.

Loved his kick chase in the second half to pin Sam Tomkins in his 10m zone.

Sarg isn't always the most skilful player, but in terms of his workrate and bravery he's second to none.

Completely agree re the Sarginson comments. He always gives nothing less than 100%. I think he’ll be missed much more than some would have you believe, mainly because I’m not sure Bibby is as good as him.

But I digress; gritty first 20 and we did well to keep Catalans at bay when they were bombarding our line. I think they had something like 6/7 consecutive sets? The turning point was the Liam sin bin and they still couldn’t get over. Their heads went and we just went to work on them.

Navarette went well, but my issue is that he isn’t consistent with those performances. I like him but a little more consistency please. Partington was fantastic, a proper Warrior. Just throws himself with everything he has in whatever he does on the pitch. He’s one to watch for certain! Smithies and Byrne went well too. Greenwood looked good for his stint.

I don’t think any player had a bad day, I thought we were pretty good across the board. Just guilty of trying to be a little too flash when we ought to have been more conservative in that situation. The one that sticks in my mind is when Gildart threw the ball into touch 10mtrs out.

Harry has a decent run out, didn’t get long enough to make a real mark on the game but he took his try brilliantly. He’ll certainly grow as a player and we’ll see more and more of his talent and promise the more he plays SL.

Hardaker outshined Tomkins as well, he put in another fantastic performance and I just for the life of me can’t figure out how he’s not in the GB performance squad.

Navarrette was responsible for coming out of the defensive line to allow Micky mac to score

One of the most pleasing points of the game was keeping Catalans scoreless despite them being camped in our twenty for over ten minutes. To keep them out after wave and wave of pressure was impressive.

Even more so when we went down to twelve men went up the other end and scored.

What i don't like with catalans and Greg bird in particular is there was nowt up with him when Farrell tackled him without the ball i thought it was more to do with self preservation on Farrell's part but he went down like jesus on the cross yet i know we got an 8 point try when Simon went in with the knees i would personally prefer just the 6 points and them getting sin binned for what was a 3-4 feet knee slide into his ribs and then he ends up in the advertising boards,for me Hicks never had any control over the game and it was only through our players showing restraint that there wasn't a brawl

Debatable who’s fault that was. Looking at it again Navarrete rushes out and stopped the halfback getting the ball and Smithies should do better on Micky Mac (along with the markers).

Navarrete was excellent IMO. He made 25 tackles and 123 metres last night and that’s a great effort in what wasn’t a load of minutes on the field. I think somebody on here commented previously that it’s a shame he can’t play against a French team every week.
