Interview: Vincent Duport Relives The Record Breaking Try

Vincent Duport has been a long standing servant to the Catalans Dragons, first making his debut at the age of 19 in the 2007 Super League season the second year the Dragons were in the English competition.

With 190 Super League appearances for the Dragons you will struggle to find many players in the Dragons archives with more games. Talking with Vincent he spome openly about his pride of breaking the record "I'm really proud of this accomplishment, it was always an objective of mine to be part of the clubs history".

Sometimes players are unaware that they are on the verge of greatness, others are too focused on their personal accomplishment, it would appear that the prolific winger had found a balance saying "I knew I was one try away from beating Clints' record, but before the game I have just one thing in my head, to win, it's always great to score a try but to win is more important".

When asked to describe the moment of the record breaking try, Duport was unable to, stating "I was so focused on the game I didn't realise at that moment, it was after the game when family and friends were texting me to congratulate me on the record".

To close up, I asked Vincent to give me a run through of his top tries out of his 86, surprisingly number 86 not making the list " my hat-trick against Leeds in the 2009 semi-final will be something I never forget, also my first try in Super League against Hull FC".

A big thanks to Vincent for taking the time to talk to us, let's hope to see him push that record out further.
