Romain Navarrete reflects on Wigan Warriors’ 33-16 defeat to Catalans Dragons.
The 24-year-old thanked the travelling fans for their support at the Camp Nou.
- Navarrete: “The fans were amazing during the game.”
Romain Navarrete was full of praise for the ‘amazing’ travelling fans who watched Wigan Warriors’ 33-16 defeat to Catalans Dragons at the Camp Nou.
The prop gave credit to the Wigan fans who made the trip to Barcelona and were part of a record Super League attendance of 31,555.
Navarrete said: “The fans were amazing during the game. It was frustrating that they came out to support us and we didn’t play good enough.”

The former Catalans forward believed the better team won the game as errors cost Adrian Lam’s side.
“We made too many mistakes and didn’t do enough, and you can’t win the game when you play like that.”
“We let them go forward which wasn’t great, and we didn’t put our bodies in front of them.”
The 24-year-old also argued that last week’s Challenge Cup defeat to Warrington Wolves played its part.
“I think it killed us off a bit in our heads, so we need to focus again next week for the Magic Weekend and work hard to make sure we win.”
