Wigan will have been spewing at the way they threw this
Premiership Trophy tie away. They led 16-2 in the 52nd Minute when Bob
Irving and Saints Eddie Cunningham were both Sent Off for Fighting. That
incident sparked champions St Helens into life and they found four tries
afterwards to seal a "remarkable recovery" to win 22-16. All that despite
Saints having needed an extra replay to progress past their midweek Round 2
clash with Bradford. One newspaper reporter described this turnaround as
""the most incredible transformation" he had ever seen.
