Catalan Dragons head coach Trent Robinson is looking for his side to elevate their game even further after beating London Broncos.

The French club sealed a comfortable 36-18 win at the Stoop thanks in part to two tries apiece from Vincent Duport and Louis Anderson.

The Dragons climbed to third in the Stobart Super League table with their second high-scoring victory in five days, notching seven tries in the process.

However, Robinson believes they are yet to peak and is now hoping his troops can 'push on' in the coming weeks.

Vital

"I think we are just starting to get things going," commented Robinson.

"We have been okay so far this season but I cannot say we have been playing great football.

"But that is two good starts in the past two games and we need to push that on.

"I think this period from Easter to the cup games is absolutely vital as the league begins to separate a bit after that.

"We hit the ground running tonight and we need to back that up."

Slow start

Robinson's counterpart Rob Powell felt the Broncos never really recovered following a slow start on home soil.

"They came out of the box quickly and we struggled to contain them," explained Powell.

"I thought in the first half we did okay and were in the game.

"We should not concede four tries in 10 minutes and we have to get better at stopping momentum.

"There were some poor defensive reads and some poor refereeing decisions and that gave us too much to do.

"If you look at the overall game we did pretty well against a very strong side but things do not work like that."
