Catalans Dragons 26-17 Warrington Wolves

Catalans Dragons picked up another impressive victory, this time against Warrington in front of another encouraging 9,000 plus crowd at Stade Aime Giral.

In an exciting game, the lead changed hands several times until Alex Chan's converted try, quickly followed by a Stacey Jones drop goal put Catalans two scores in front, and they never looked back.

A Thomas Bosc penalty put Catalans ahead after quarter of an hour, with Olivier Charles extending that advantage with a try on debut. Ben Westwood's 32nd minute try cancelled out that effort, and Henry Fa'afili edged the Wolves in front just on half time, 10-8.

Catalans restored their lead four minute in to the second half when Casey McGuire crossed the whitewash, but the impressive Westwood scored his second try ten minute later to give the Wolves the advantage once again.

But Chan's try just after the hour mark, converted by Bosc, was followed by a Jones drop goal on 67, and gave the Dragons a 21-14 lead.

Although Lee Briers' penalty pulled Warrington back within five points of the home side, they failed to break Catalans' resistance, and the Frenchmen wrapped up the two points when Bosc converted his own try in the last minute.

The 27-16 win takes Catalans in to the top six this evening, although Harlequins could displace them should they win at Huddersfield tomorrow.
