The Kiwis were on the fifth match of the tour and looking for the fourth victory with three weeks still to go before the first test. They met a Wigan side that was struggling with injury. Billy Boston, despite wearing shirt number 2, played at full back throughout the game and was reported to "not look fully fit". This didn't stop Wigan competing but New Zealand more than deserved their victory.
