Wigan Warriors spoiled the Catalans Dragons’ Super League homecoming with victory in front of a 5,000 crowd at the Stade Gibert Brutus in Perpignan.

Oliver Gildart, Bevan French and Joe Burgess scored first-half Wigan tries to establish a comfortable 18-0 lead.

Burgess’ second and a Sam Powell effort sealed it for Wigan, in spite of Julian Bousquet and Fouad Yaha’s tries.
