Wigan had cost Saints the 1974 title by claiming a draw off them on Good Friday but they couldn't stop them winning the 1975 title. To rub Wigan's noses in it, Saints sealed the title with this humbling victory at Central Park. Saint's took the lead in just the 3rd Minute with a try from Frank Wilson but the only other first half score came from a George Fairbairn penalty in the 30th Minute. Saints superiority shone after the break with them scoring 18 points to nil, Wigan falling away dramatically.
