Wigan were still alive in the title race and "kept their hopes simmering" with this Good Friday victory over the enemy. A try from Brian Juliff put Wigan ahead and they went further ahead four minutes before half time when good work from Martin Foy sent Brian Case over. Colin Whitfield's conversion made it 8-0 but after the break, Saints soon hit back with an unconverted try from Kevin Meadows for 8-3. That score held all the way until the 70th minute when Graeme West crashed over to seal the win, 13-3 after Whitfield converted. Meadows late second try of the game for Saints was just consolation.
