Wane wants ruthless Wigan
Wigan head coach Shaun Wane has called for his side to show their ruthless streak against Catalan Dragons in Montpellier later on Saturday.
The red-hot Warriors demolished Leeds 50-6 at Headingley last time out to strengthen their position at the top of the table.
Wane believes the performance against the defending champions was his side's best to date this season and feels that hard work is finally paying off after a few lacklustre games at the start of the campaign.
And the next task for Wane and his players is to replicate that display against Trent Robinson's Dragons.
"I've watched (the Leeds game) a few times and it's got better the more that I've watched it," Wane told Warriors TV.
"We showed good character and we caused them a lot of problems with our attack and our desire to defend.
"I know many people doubted me right at the start but the players have worked so hard. Quality and repetition is all we've done and I'm glad now that we're seeing the benefits of it."
Wane is now looking to back up the win over the Rhinos in the south of France against a Catalan side smarting from a defeat to Salford last Friday - a performance that Robinson called "disgusting".
Wane said: "We know it's going to be a tough trip as they got beaten by Salford and I know their coach was a bit sore after that game so they'll be coming out firing.
"We have watched all our footage of our last game against Catalan and we know there are areas where we can get them again and again."
Today will be a special day for Catalan forward Steve Menzies who, at the age of 38 and 188 days, will become the oldest player in the history of Super League.
The former Manly forward will surpass the record set by Brad David in 2004 and also come face to face with the man many rate as the best in the competition.
Sam Tomkins has been Super League's standout player for the last 18 months and has started attracting celebrity interest from the likes of Rio Ferdinand.
And Menzies, who has seen nearly everything in his long career, rates the 23-year-old highly.
"He's exceptional, with tries that he has scored and with the way that he runs the ball," he said.
"He's a player that we need to be aware of, from two metres out or 102 metres out. He's a very dangerous player and he will always be a handful.
"Wigan are a side that are well drilled, have great players all over the team and have some of superb individual brilliance."
In Saturday's other game, bottom side London Broncos host Widnes at the Stoop.
Widnes lifted themselves off the foot of the table at the Broncos' expense with a shock 26-22 win over Huddersfield last Sunday, while London succumbed to their 14th Super League defeat of the season against Wakefield
