SAINTS boss Kristian Woolf praised referee Liam Moore for handling a stormy game with Catalan high shots.

Moore sent James Maloney and Ben Garcia into sin for these tackles – something that eventually bit visitors on the scoreboard.

There were a few flashpoints and flares – and he spoke to both captains after one of the dragons’ lofty duels.

« He made sure things didn’t get out of hand and kept the players from taking matters into their own hands. «  »

The Catalans went into the game without two of their key players, hooker Michael McIlorum and second rower Joel Tomkins, as the suspension and over-physical approach backfired spectacularly as they were reduced to 12 men twice.

James Maloney and second-row striker Benjamin Garcia were both sentenced to sin for high tackles when the Dragons conceded six goals in the second half.

Coach Steve McNamara admitted the yellow cards added to his team’s job but declined to use McIlorum and Tomkins’ absence as an excuse for losing.

« They are good players but I thought we were really there in the first half, » he said. « We weren’t too worried about the scoreboard at halftime. We thought we could get back to it, but we got the second half terribly wrong. « .

« The two attempts in the first 10 minutes took the scoreboard away and then we tore ourselves apart.

« This is the killer for me. We fought so hard to get to that point and after so much effort from the players and staff throughout the season, it’s tough to get into a big semi-final and let yourself be beaten by it. «  »
