Summary: 

Having been postponed at Christmas, Central Park was hosting its first derby in two and a half years since Boxing Day 1979. This was also the first time a league derby between the sides was contested on a Sunday Afternoon. Results of games elsewhere had already ensured Wigan wouldn't be relegated and they finished the 1981/82 season absolutely rampaging over Saints with the score line looking closer than it was because only one of the eight tries were converted. Meanwhile, at the top of the table Hull and Widnes were meeting each other and Hull's 21-3 victory on this day saw them go top. Leigh though still had a game in hand and on the following Wednesday they sweated past bottom of the table Whitehaven to win their first title in 76 years with a 13-4 win at the Recreation Ground.

Half Time:  Wigan 11 St Helens 0
Attendance:  7,242
Referee:  Ron Campbell
