Summary:l

Wigan were boosted by the return of hooker Colin Clarke, who played for first time since he had broken his ankle in September. The first half was pretty tight with Wigan's points all coming from kicks. Four penalties from George Fairbairn and a drop goal by Jimmy Nulty. Saints had tied up at 9-9 before Bill Melling put Wigan back ahead with an unconverted try for a 12-9 lead. Then in the 76th Minute it looked like Saints had stolen it with a try from Geoff Pimblett being in good goal kicking range but amazingly Kel Coslett missed and the match finished a draw.
