Dragons' Wolves scalp 'tremendous' - McNamara
Catalans Dragons' head coach Steve McNamara said his side's 23-22 Super League win against Warrington Wolves was "tremendous".
The Wolves arrived in Perpignan boasting a 100% record after three successive wins, but they returned home from the south of France pointless as the Dragons secured their second win of the campaign.
The hosts blew a 14-0 lead in the contest as Warrington stormed back in a bid to remain amongst the early frontrunners in the Super League standings, but Sam Tomkins kicked a match-winning penalty from 45 metres for Catalans.
Afterwards, a delighted McNamara said: "It was tremendous for the club. Warrington have had an unbeaten start and have been superb in all three games and no one has got close to them.
"We had a bit of adversity ourselves, we've got a few players missing ourselves, I'm just really pleased for the group, they've trained really well and I thought we deserved the win.
"I thought everybody played well and everyone needed to play their part. We weren't happy with our performance last week, but at this early stage of the season you’re trying to build some foundations so your team can be successful later in the year.
"As poor as we were last week and at Castleford to a certain extent, our ability to hang in games and defend a whole lot better than this club has done previously came through for us tonight."
