This would be the final league fixture for 26 days with
the competition taking a break for the Rugby League World Cup. Billy Boston,
Eric Ashton, Mick Sullivan and Brian McTigue were all in the Great Britian
squad. Wigan had to play this game against Rochdale without those players
but they managed to get a good win anyway.
