This Derby in the BBC 2 Floodlit Trophy was meant to have
been played the day before but was postponed due to Fog. Quickly re-arranged
within 24 hours, but no longer televised, an excellent contest was fought
out. Tries from John Stephens and Colin Tyrer had helped Wigan build up a
12-3 Half Time lead with Saints only response coming from Tom van
Vollenhoven. Saints hit back early after the break with a try from Tommy
Bishop and conversion from John Mantle making it 12-8 but Wigan responded
with tries from Billy Boston and Colin Clarke and were comfortable for the
rest of the game with a 22-8 advantage. A late Tony Barrow try for Saints
was only consolation.
