Robinson hails Dragons defence
Catalan Dragons produced an eight-try show to rock Warrington but it was the defensive effort which proved the most pleasing for coach Trent Robinson.
His team ran out 44-16 winners against the side that finished top of the Super League table last year, to preserve their 100% home record this season.
He said: "We started a whole lot better than we have in recent weeks, and that is good to see, that we are starting to win games from in front rather than coming from behind. We won the game because of our defence, we only conceded two tries throughout the game and then one right at the end."
Catalan climbed above both Warrington and Hull FC to reach third place, with Steve Menzies and Setaimata Sa each scoring a pair of tries, and Lopini Paea, Thomas Bosc, Louis Anderson and Daryl Millard also touching down.
"There was a 15-minute period in the second half where they were camped on our line and we had to scrap and we had to scramble," Robinson added. "But I felt at that time we had won the game, the passion and desire the guys had out there showed us all that.
"Daryl Millard then goes and scores his try and that seals the win. I'm really proud of what we produced defensively out there and we won the game because of it."
Warrington coach Tony Smith was left downbeat after his side's loss at the Stade Gilbert Brutus, saying: "It is a great disappointment to come over here and lose, and lose in the way we did.
"That being said, we have to keep positive and I think we are in a better place than we were last year. We had lost four games at this stage last season, whereas today is our third loss of the season.
"Going into the game without Michael Monaghan [out with a knee problem] was going to be a tough ask, and that became more difficult when Richie Myler left the game with a groin injury.
"With neither of those players in the side we found it difficult to find opportunities in and around the ruck, and we also lacked a little direction that any side would miss if you had those players missing."
