This was a hell of a cup tie at Central Park. Wigan had built up a great lead inside ten minutes with tries from Jackie Cunliffe and Eric Ashton putting Wigan 10-0 ahead with Ashton converting both. This was looking easy but following the second try, Warrington hit back immediately with a try from O'Grady that Fraser converted for 10-5. Then on 28 minutes Edwards scored for Warrington and another conversion from Fraser made it 10-10 into half time. Warrington then went ahead second half with a try from Karalius for 13-10 but later good work from Ashton got Keith Holden in for a try to level the scores at 13-13. The match was only decided when Challinor for Warrington kicked a drop goal to win it with 30 seconds to go!
