Played in damp conditions, Wigan capitalised on the hosts being down to 12-men with James Graham in the sin-bin and opened up a 12-0 lead with tries from George Carmont and Joel Tomkins. Matt Gidley pulled one back for Saints as they trailed 12-6 at the interval.
Pat Richards extended the visitors lead with a penalty goal before Saints hit back with tries from Ade Gardner and a second from Gidley to lead 16-12.
Richards kicked a long range penalty goal to level the game up at 16-16 and could have one it for the Warriors but he missed a last minute drop goal. The win for Wigan and Warrington defeat sets up next week
