Wigan took a break from league action to welcome tourists
Australia to Central Park on a Wednesday Night. Great Britain had levelled
the test series with a 18-14 victory at Odsal the previous weekend and
Australia were looking to bounce back and when Wigan trailed just 5-2 at
half time, hopes became high of an upset. Wigan though had lost both Dave
Willicombe (broken arm) and John Wood (dislocated elbow) to injury early on
and it began to tell during the second half as Australia ran away to score
five tries after the interval for a comfortable 28-2 win in the end.
