Warrington have been beaten in the final moments for the second consecutive game as Wigan maintained their top-four place.
Willie Isa’s early sinbin for a professional foul on Jake Mamo proved costly as Warrington opened the scoring. Stefan Ratchford booted a kick forward for Matty Ashton to chase, but he was tackled without the ball by Dom Manfredi so a penalty try was awarded.
Chris Hill kept his legs pumping in his surge for the line and was able to ground the ball in the in-goal, while Ratchford added the extras to put Warrington into a commanding two-score lead.
Joe Greenwood hit-back for Wigan as he through a huge hole in the line.
Wigan levelled the game up moments into the second stanza; Jackson Hastings’ delightful kick was collected and dotted down by Hardaker, who added the crucial conversion.
Although Warrington were handed a penalty in strong field position, a mis-communication between players meant Warrington were forced to kick for two, which Ratchford did successfully.
The second-half try-scoring deadlock was broken with four minutes remaining as Harry Smith provided a short ball to allow Liam Farrell with a simple stroll-in.
