Sam Tomkins with incredible gesture at the Magic Weekend

On the back of their best win of the season, it is paramount that Catalans back up at the Magic Weekend.

The Dragons last week defeated Champions St Helens at home as they gained revenge for their Grand Final defeat at Old Trafford last year.

It was a reminder that the Dragons are still one of the biggest threats to the Champions in the race for Old Trafford.

Yesterday the Champions themselves got back on track by defeating Wigan in a classic encounter that was decided by a late Jonny Lomax try.

Subsequently, should the Dragons win by at least 17 points today they will leapfrog Wigan into second place which could be a key boost as the season unfolds with first and second having the favourable routes to the Grand Final.

The Dragons will be overwhelming favourites today as they meet a struggling Warrington side in transition under new boss Daryl Powell.

Catalans are no strangers to important Magic Weekend wins either. At last year’s event their amazing comeback saw them defeat St Helens in golden point to claim the League Leaders’ Shield.

As they look to claim another historic win Sam Tomkins has aimed at giving the French side an extra boost asking for fans who would like to be “a Dragon for a day.”

He has left 50 tickets at St James’ Park for those who want to support the Dragons in the game announcing as such on Twitter:

It means the Dragons’ support will be bolstered despite being away from home and will give 50 lucky people a ticket for the exciting event.
