Wigan fought back from 21 points behind to claim a thrilling Super League win at bottom side Catalans Dragons.

Catalans led by 15 at the break, with Tony Gigot kicking a penalty and a drop-goal to add to tries from Benjamin Jullien and David Mead.

Ben Garcia went over to stretch the lead, but Dan Sarginson's try sparked the Warriors comeback soon after.

Wigan added five more as Oliver Gildart, Joe Burgess, Liam Farrell, Sam Tomkins and Tony Clubb sealed the win.

Clubb's try came after Catalans had been reduced to 12 men, with Mickael Simon sent to the sin-bin for a challenge on John Bateman, who landed head first.

The Dragons had no such excuses for the other five tries, and they remained 12th in the table, heaping the pressure back on head coach Steve McNamara.

Wigan stay second after claiming their first away win in three attempts.

Shaun Wane's side face a challenging trip to Leeds Rhinos in their next fixture, while Catalans travel to Castleford.
