Two first half tries from Tommy Makinson and a Lachlan Coote penalty sent Saints in at the break with a 12-4 lead after Zak Hardaker had converted two penalties for Wigan.
Saints started the second half in perfect fashion with Coote latching onto a Theo Fages kick to extend the lead. Two more Saints tries followed as Kevin Naiqama pounced on a Wigan knock on to score and Jonny Lomax chased down a blocked kick to pick up and score. Hardaker scored a consolation try for Wigan, but Saints came away with the bragging rights.
Justin Holbrook hailed Saints win over rivals Wigan Warriors on derby day as a “massive effort” whilst Morgan Knowles was naturally delighted with the derby day win.
