Tries from Iain Thornley and Sam Tomkins put the visitors ahead early in the first half, but Tom Lineham and Ben Crooks pegged them back to reduce Wigan's lead to two points at the break.

Two Pat Richards penalties inside the last 10 minutes helped extend the visitors' lead as the hosts continued to press hard for another try, but they were unable to increase their score late in the game.
