Wigan coach Shaun Wane was left singing the praises of Sam Tomkins once again after the full-back produced another virtuoso display in the 64-6 thrashing of London Broncos at the Stoop.

Tomkins scored three tries himself and created three more for others as Wigan made it eight Super League wins in a row, while London continue to struggle at the wrong end of the table.

"What can you say?" said Wane. "Sam is a total one-off.

"He really is a class act, his competitive nature in training and on the pitch is a joy to see.

"The individual try he scored today was one of the best I have ever seen, I just wish we had more players who had that attitude.

"For us to come here today and put on a performance like that leaves me ecstatic.

"Our attack was really crisp and I thought our concentration levels throughout were fantastic."

London beat Bradford in the Challenge Cup last weekend but they conceded four tries in the first 15 minutes here, found themselves 38-0 behind at the break, and continued to leak points in the second half.

Intent lacking from Broncos

Broncos coach Tony Rea said: "The players did not come out with any sort of intent and Wigan have the players who can exploit those gaps.

"We know there will be lows after highs, but such a low as that is unacceptable.

"We are measuring ourselves against teams like Wigan, and I thought there were performances out there today that showed me a lot of those players are not the answer in terms of where this club wants to be.

"We have some challenging times ahead and some tough decisions have to be made."
