Wigan had lost to Hunslet at Parkside just over a month earlier, so this was down as a difficult cup tie for the Cherry & Whites. Wigan took the lead with a penalty goal from Fred Griffiths before an unconverted try from Billy Boston made it 5-0. A second penalty from Griffiths made it 7-0 but seven minutes before half time an error from Dave Bolton was hacked forward by Hunslet's winger Colin. It looked like Griffiths could defend the kick forward easily but he messed it up and Colin pounced for a try that was converted by Langton for 7-5 at half time. The second half was immensely tight and tense but the only score came from a third penalty goal from Griffiths that proved enough for Wigan to reach the second round.

Half Time:l Hunslet 5 Wigan 7
Referee:l D.T.H Davies (Manchester)
