Wigan sweated all afternoon against this amateur opposition in the Challenge Cup First Round, which spawned from the old St Helens Recs club that had been professional between 1913 and 1939, highlighted by just a 3-2 lead at half time. The match was played at Knowsley Road and the fact St Helens had played the day before helped swell the crowd to 11,000 for the contest. Ironically more than had attended St Helens v Wigan itself on Boxing Day.
