It took until the 26th Minute for the scoring to being with a quick inside pass from Eric Ashton getting Frank Parr over for 5-0 after Colin Tyrer converted. But on 32 minutes a combination of Neale and Keegan got Clive Sullivan over for 5-3, a score which remained to half time.In the second half a try from Bill Francis and a drop goal from Eric Ashton settled the match 10-3 in Wigan's favour.
