Bevan French grabbed his first Betfred Super League hat-trick as Wigan moved a step closer to securing second place with a convincing 46-12 win over Catalans Dragons.
The Warriors got off to a shaky start and were under the cosh for a while, but two tries from winger French soon changed all that as Wigan led 14-0 at the break.
French completed his hat-trick five minutes after half-time, while further tries from Zak Hardaker and Thomas Leuluai put the Warriors in full control before teenage half-back Harry Smith came off the bench to mark his first team debut with a try.
Dan Sarginson and Oliver Gildart grabbed tries late on, while Catalans' points all came from former Warriors, with Michael McIlorum and Lewis Tierney both scoring tries while Sam Tomkins added the conversions.
Catalans dominated the opening 20 minutes as they camped inside Wigan's half, but strong defence from the likes of Tony Clubb, George Williams and Liam Farrell ensured the Dragons were unable to cross over.
