This was already the fourth meeting of the season between St Helens and Wigan but with the Saints having won both the Lancashire and Floodlit Cup ties, Wigan would have been grateful to win this one. Especially when it was a victory that inflicted Saints first home defeat of the season. Wigan had a wind advantage in the first half and used it well to build up a 10-2 lead with tries scored by Colin Tyrer and Bill Ashurst. In the second half Ashurst kiced a drop goal for a 12-2 lead and that was a crucial score in the end with Saints still needing two tries after Les Jones had got one back.
