Match Report

Wigan took a break from league action to welcome the Catalan Dragons Under 19s side to Orrell.

The Dragons were up for joining the league and playing games home and away this season but the RFL pulled them out of the league at late notice because not all teams could commit to travelling away to face them. So instead Catalan are playing "friendlies" sporadically throughout the year against whoever will play them and Wigan will reciprocate the visit by playing in France when the first team visit in May.

Matty Peet took the opportunity to make subtle changes to his side. Lewis Heckford, normally a full back, started at Scrum Half. Josh Ganson, son of ex referee Steve, started his first game at hooker and Joel Verite, who scored six tries in five Under 16s games last season, was making his first Under 19s appearance on the right wing.

The French Side weirdly played in shirts that had the first team squad names and numbers on their backs, so identifying them with the team sheet was pretty impossible.

The first half an hour was very much a pack battle with not much between the two sides. Wigan found two tries with first Gabriel Fell finding a gap on the left side in the 14th Minute before quick hands got Verite over in the 22nd Minute. Conversion for the first try made it 10-0.

At this point it began to look like Catalan were beginning to flag but Wigan were sloppy in wasting the gaps they had found. The visitors then recovered to make the score 10-6 at half time after Quentin Quemener scored and Amine Miloudi converted.

You sense Wigan got straightened out at half time by the coaching staff because they came out with three tries in twelve minutes to practically seal the game. First Jack Higginson's long arching break saw him finish well under the sticks before further tries came from Luke Waterworth and Kyle Shelford. Two goals from Shorrocks made ti 26-6.

The game then went flat for a long while but two further tries would come in the final ten minutes. Both of them fell to debutant Verite who completed his hat-trick. Two more goals from Shorrocks completed a hard fought 38-6 win.
