Strange match. Saints led early 10-0 but by half time Wigan had scored 10 points in an 8 minute spell to level. The match wasn't decided until Saints broke the 10-10 deadlock with just five minutes to go!

Half Time:  Wigan 10 St Helens 10
Attendance:  9,368
Note:  The government ban, at this time, on use floodlights was not enforced for Boxing Day fixtures.
