Summary:l

A Miserable fail in Wigan's final league match of the season. Needing to put some pressure on Swinton, they failed to do so. So despite ending their league campaign top of the table by 4 points, Swinton STILL had six matches to play to over-haul Wigan's lead. All Wigan fans could do was sit around and hope. Swinton's run in got off to a good start when they won 13-4 at Leeds on April 29th, but a 21-8 loss at Featherstone on May 6th kept Wigan two points clear. But with a 12-7 win at Wakefield on May 13th, Swinton went top, with a superior "Goal Average" meaning the only hope Wigan had left was to hope that Swinton would lose all three of their remaining matches by heavy scorelines. Swinton finally clinched the title with two matches to spare after they beat Hull KR at home 11-2 on May 18th. This occurred a full 23 days after Wigan's season had finished, which seems a bit unsatisfactory, but the fact Wigan only won one of their final five league games was ultimately the reason they failed to win the title. Swinton in the end won the title by six points.
