Summary:l

Weather in January had seen two Wigan matches frozen off and weather was causing problems again here but in the guise of fog this time. The thickening of the fog after half time left play virtually unwatchable for spectators but the drama had perhaps all been done before then. Wigan had a shocking first half, trailing 9-0 at the break, but tries from Bill Francis and David Hill had Wigan back to 9-8 within six minutes of the restart. The rally proved a false dawn as Featherstone settled back down in the worsening conditions to win 14-8 and continue their great form which had now seen them rise to third in the table.
