There was another thriller down the road from Wakefield at Castleford, where the Catalan Dragons came away with a 17-17 draw.
Thomas Bosc seemed to have won it for the Catalans with a drop-goal, but Gareth O'Brien, on loan from Warrington, paid off part of his rental fee by squaring it up with a drop-goal as time ran out.
The London Broncos are still bottom of the table without a point, but they at least showed some fight and passion in the first half at Wigan.
With Sam Tomkins (right) in the sin-bin for dissent, the Broncos led 12-10 through a try from Keiron Dixon. Wigan strode away in the second half to win 48-18, but fear that they could be without Lee Mossop for three months with a dislocated shoulder.
Warrington remained unbeaten with a 24-10 win at Hull, after trailing 6-4 at half-time. The Wolves' wingers, Joel Monaghan and Chris Riley, scored two tries apiece.
St Helens' Jonny Lomax went one better at Bradford, with a hat-trick in a 36-10 victory. The regular scrum-half was switched to full-back in the absence of Paul Wellens, who has a calf injury, and adapted to the new role with relish.
He is likely to retain the position on Friday night, when Saints play Leeds, who lost their World Club title to Melbourne with an 18-14 defeat on Friday night.
