Eden frustrates his French hosts.

CATALAN Dragons head coach Laurent Frayssinous was left disappointed at his side's inability to close out the win despite leading by five points heading into the last five minutes of their Super League encounter with Hull KR.

Former Giants player Greg Eden scored a hat trick as Rovers secured a vital 22-21 victory in Toulouse, which moved them above St Helens and into seventh place.

The visitors had been trailing 13-12 at half-time after they raced to a 12-0 advantage, but Michael Dobson's touchline conversion five minutes from the hooter following Eden's third score clinched a win which edged them one step closer to the play-offs.

"We are all frustrated after that and disappointed to lose," Frayssinous said.

"In the end I have to ask the question 'did we deserve to lose or did we deserve to win?' and if you look at the game as a whole, there are some good signs and some bad signs.

"Defensively we were pretty good. On the other side, we didn't do enough to win, but we have to move on."

Catalan did cross four times through Kevin Larroyer, Morgan Escare and Vincent Duport (two), while Josh Hodgson joined Eden on the scoresheet for Rovers.
