WARRINGTON Wolves fell to a fourth straight loss at Wigan Warriors and their battle from the threat of relegation continues.

The Wire led at half-time thanks to Ben Currie's try converted by Stefan Ratchford.

But they conceded with the final play of the first half as Sam Halsall crossed, leaving it at 4-6.

A contested try by Jake Bibby, converted by Harry Smith, handed Wigan the lead three minutes into the second half.

Then a scruffy offload from Patrick Mago hands Liam Marshall the first of a hat-trick of tries.

Two tries from high kicks, with first Thewlis and then Wrench beaten in the air, saw Marshall complete a 14-minute hat-trick.

Warrington had four missed chances across both halves which were not taken but could have changed the game had they been finished off.
