Wakefield took a 7th Minute lead with a drop goal from Valentine but three minutes later Wigan claimed the first of what would prove to be eleven tries and an easy rout into the Championship Final. They were helped by Wakefield's Marston being sent off for tripping Bill Francis not long after that first try but by half time the lead was 23-7 and never likely to be over-hauled.

Wigan 23 Wakefield 7
