The Lancashire Cup draw gave an early chance of revenge for Wigan having been humiliated at Wembley by Saints at the end of the previous season. It was revenge that was not expected though with Wigan having performed poorly during most of the season so far. However, they were faring far better when Colin Clarke was available and he was in the side for this one. The tie was played on a night in which heavy torrential rain poured from an hour before kick off and throughout the game. Saints had led 7-2 in the first half after a try and two goals from Len Killeen but two penalties from Laurie Gilfedder brought Wigan back to 7-6 at the half. The wind/rain advantage was in Wigan's favour after the break and early in the half a superb long pass from Eric Ashton sent Billy Boston over and Gilfedder converted to put Wigan 11-7 ahead. Killeen reduced that to 11-9 with another penalty but it proved not to be enough. Wigan hung on.
