It was deemed that Wigan had "more than one eye" on their
Challenge Cup Semi Final against Hull KR which was to follow in eight days
time. They were well beaten here on Good Friday with Saints taking the lead
after just five minutes with a Brian McGinn try. That was 5-0 after Kel
Coslett converted and after Eric Ashton had reduced that to 5-2 with a
penalty, Tom van Vollenhoven was causing damage down the right and from a
quick play the ball, eight Saints players had a touch before Mick Sullivan,
ex of Wigan, finished on the other side of the field. That was 10-2 after
Coslett converted again but although Ashton reduced that back to 10-4,
Saints found a third first half try from Alex Murphy, again converted. So
that was 15-4 at the break and Wigan's task made all the harder by Brian
McTigue withdrawing from the rest of the game with an ankle injury. They had
little hope of chasing Saints down thereafter and a further try came from
van Vollenhoven later in the game.
