Summary:l

Both these sides started this game 4th and 5th in the table and within touching distance of the title race but it was Saints who got a big boost though with a dominant first half seeing them lead 11-3 and well on the road to victory. Wigan responded well second half but failure to convert tries saw them always chasing too much in the end with the seven point winning margin for Saints being dictated by extra goal kicking and a drop goal.
