Keith Holden's ankle injury left him out of this Lancashire Cup tie against Salford but Wigan still "won at leisure". They took a 5-0 lead with a 12th Minute try from John Barton and by half time had a  lead of 23-5 after further tries from Dave Bolton (2), Eric Ashton, Billy Boston. Both sides exchanged tries early second half with Ashton scoring his second first for Wigan before Salford's reply made it 28-10. Wigan though kicked on and Dave Bolton's hat-trick try was followed by a second for Boston which had Wigan 36-10 ahead. Salford found a late consolation but Terry Entwistle's try wrapped up a great Wigan win.
