Liam Moore slams the behaviour of Wigan Warriors and Catalans Dragons

With another big game tomorrow, today we are seeing Wigan Warriors head over to France in a top of the table clash with Catalans Dragons after Warrington Wolves took a massive step towards the play-offs defeating Hull FC.

It has been an interesting game between Wigan and Catalans as two teams who started the round first and second meet in a crucial fixture.

At home, Catalans were the favourites having won four games in a row.

But they were out played in the first half and at times we saw that frustration emerge from the league leaders Catalans after a simple penalty for Wigan led to some pushing and shoving which led to Liam Moore bringing in both side’s captains to dress them down.

He could be heard on Sky Sports saying: “It is a simple penalty, it’s an escort. What I don’t need is players running in and causing problems, especially experienced players.”

Wigan started the game excellently rolling Catalans down field frequently doing what is rarely seen in Super League and out muscling the Dragons in their own back yard.

As they routinely forced their way down field, Wigan eventually got their try as a probing kick from Bevan French caused confusion.

Tom Johnstone came across to deal with it colliding with Toby King allowing Abbas Miski to get to the ball and ground it to score.

Another kick led to another try as Miski rose highest to claim the kick before offloading to centre Toby King to score.

Wigan were on top and causing problems down the edge for Catalans especially down their right and the left of the French side.

Speaking of French, Bevan French continued to torment the Dragons as he ducked and darted through tackles busting tackles to power his way over the line in the corner.

A second conversion from Harry Smith, who also missed a penalty, made it 16-0 before Miski claimed a second try on the stroke of halftime.

Again French caused problems with a probing run and Miski hit a line inside as dummy runners moved wide of the winger allowing Miski to go through on his disguised line and powered through the cover to score a second try.
