Super League side take amazing away following to huge fixture

This weekend was the home to big games as Leeds Rhinos head to Huddersfield Giants, Warrington Wolves and Hull FC collided, Wigan Warriors faced a top of the table clash in France and Leigh Leopards were battered by Hull KR.

But it is undoubted that the big game was the clash between Wigan and Catalans Dragons which was played in front of a sell out crowd with two temporary stands erected.

But it wasn’t just home fans in attendance with a huge 1000 Wigan fans making the trip over to France for a game they were expected to lose against Catalans who had won four in a row.

They were rewarded with a whopping win.

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.

He would later score his third try as Wigan stormed to a statement victory over the league leaders.

Jake Wardle would add another try capitalising on a Tyrone May error.

It was a result that cemented Wigan’s title credentials but brought up serious questions about the league leaders Catalans Dragons.
