Catalans Dragons vs Wigan Warriors Super League Round 10 Preview

Catalans play host to the Wigan Warriors in Perpignan, the Dragons will be brimming in confidence after their win against the Huddersfield Giants on Bank Holiday Monday. Wigan ran out clear winners in a 44-6 drumming over the Hull Kingston Rovers, maintaining their position of 2nd in the Super League table.

Wigan claimed the win on both occasions of these two sides meeting, the Warriors running out winners by over 18 points on both occasions. Wigan have won the last 5 meetings between these two sides, to find a Catalans victory home or away you have to go all the way back to the 23rd of May 2015, a 58-16 Catalans victory at the Stade Gilbert Brutus in Round 15 of the 2015 season.

Ben Garcia is the only new name in the Dragons 19, replacing Alrix Da Costa, which means that Michael MciLorum will feature for the first time against his old squad, Shaun Wane makes 3 changes to the side that beat Hull KR on Bank Holiday Monday, Taulima Tautai, Sean O'Loughlin and Sam Powell all return for Tom Davies, Josh Ganson and Josh Woods.

Catalans Dragons: David Mead, Jodie Broughton, Iain Thornley, Brayden Williame, Fouad Yaha, Samisoni Langi, Remi Casty, Paul Aiton, Sam Moa, Louis Anderson, Benjamin Garcia, Greg Bird, Julian Bousquet, Mickael Simon, Jason Baitieri, Thibaud Margalet, Michael McIlorum, Benjamin Jullien, Tony Gigot.

Wigan Warriors: John Bateman, Joe Burgess, Tony Clubb, Liam Farrell, Ben Flower, Oliver Gildart, Gabe Hamlin, Willie Isa, Tommy Leuluai, Liam Marshall, Romain Navarrete, Sean O’Loughlin, Sam Powell, Dan Sarginson, Ryan Sutton, Taulima Tautai, Joel Tomkins, Sam Tomkins, George Williams.

I'm backing Wigan to take the victory in this fixture, Catalans played their best Rugby League of 2018 last week, purely because Huddersfield allowed them to, against a stronger defensive team like Wigan they won't be allowed to be as expansive. I'm going Wigan by a margin of 13+.
