JOSH Charnley grabbed a second-half double as Wigan came from behind to stretch their winning-streak to four games yesterday.

The Warriors, who have not lost since the opening day upset by Huddersfield, battled back from 12-10 down to see off the French outfit with a dominant second-half display.

The victory put the Warriors second in the embryonic Super League table behind Warrington, ahead of upcoming contests with struggling Widnes and London, who have yet to post a win between them.

Catalan had arrived at Wigan with the only 100% record in the competition. And they showed just why they have been tipped for a top-five finish as tries by Scott Dureau and Gregory Mounis cancelled out the first-half touchdowns by Thomas Leuluai and Pat Richards to take a 12-10 lead.

Wigan legend Jason Robinson watched from the main stand as Jack Hughes - who was born in the same year Billy Whizz debuted for the club – scored the first try of his senior career to put the home side in the driving seat.

Charnley’s double, his eighth and ninth of the campaign, sandwiched Sean O’Loughlin’s effort as the home side finished impressively.
