This was a tough battle on the short trip to Leigh after
Heavy Rain Showers had fallen for most of the day in the build up to the
Evening Kick Off. Wigan took the led 2-0 in the 15th Minute with a penalty
goal from Fred Griffiths. This became 7-0 on 23 minutes when Roy Evans beat
four defenders in scoring under the posts, Griffiths converting. Then before
half time Wigan found a second try with Frank Carlton going over in the left
corner for a 10-0 half time lead. Leigh were not without effort here but
Wigan were too strong and second half tries from Geoff Bootle and Brian
McTigue completed the win.
