Match Report from www.bbc.co.uk

Warrington won a 14-try thriller to stop Wigan taking second place in the Super League.

The Warriors suffered their first defeat under new boss Stuart Raper despite sweeping into a 12-0 lead after only five minutes.

Kris Radlinski and Paul Johnson crossed the line for two early tries, with skipper Andy Farrell adding the conversions.

But Warrington stunned Wigan with a rousing fightback to lead 34-18 at the break.

They began their recovery with tries from David Kidwell and Steve McCurrie.

And they took the lead after 24 minutes when Lee Briers dummied his way over.

Alan Hunte, Allan Langer and Lee Penny added further tries before the break, with Briers kicking five goals from six attempts.

Denis Betts did manage a try for with Farrell kicking the goal, but they trailed 34-18 at the interval.

Farrell did go over for Wigan early in the second half and his conversion and penalty cut the gap to 36-26.

But their attempted recovery was nipped in the bud when Langer's kick put Briers over to open up a 42-26 lead.

Wigan showed their never-say-die spirit with Johnson and Radlinski notching their second tries.

And Farrell took his goals tally to seven from seven attempts to cut the gap to 42-38 and set up a thrilling finale.

Langer's kick was pounced on by Toa Kohe-Love to seal a famous Warrington victory.

Briers rubbed salt into the wound with a late drop goal to finish with 23 points.

He scored two tries, landed seven goals from nine attempts and also added a drop goal.
