After a tight first half the game turned with a "peculiar
kick" from Vince Karalius early in the second half. His effort was well
sliced and blown way backwards in the strong wind. Eric Ashton hacked it
forward towards the Saints line but Alan Briers eventually collected and
Saints somehow managed to return it the length of the field for a score.
Briers found Jan Prinsloo with a pass and Franck Carlton finished in the
corner for a 12-7 Saints lead that Wigan never recovered from.
