Both Saints and Wigan had been going for the title but whilst Wigan's hopes had faded, Saints hopes of a League and Cup double were still alive as the Good Friday Derby came round at Knowsley Road. Saints though had been victims of a heavy schedule and in the end they just didn't have the legs to compete with Wigan second half who pushed on their 18-11 half time lead a further ten points second half without reply
