Summary:l

Wigan had dominated Warrington so much they led 12-2 with ten minutes to go but two late tries left them sweating away on victory with a missed conversion being crucial in the end from earning Warrington a point. Earlier Wigan led 3-0 at half time with a penalty goal from George Fairbairn being added to by a Bill Ashurst drop goal. A penalty goal apiece made the score 5-2 early second half before Brian Hogan sent John Wood racing away for a try that made it 10-2 after Fairbairn easily converted. Ashurst made it 11-2 and then 12-2 with further drop goals before Warrington's late rally.
