On the Friday prior to this contest, Wigan's two title rivals met each other in front of 20,569. Hull beat Hull KR 21-3 at The Boulevard but Wigan perhaps would have prefered for a Rovers victory because they had a straight fight on points difference with them. That derby victory was effectively Hull's game in hand on Wigan and they used it to go a point clear of them. Two days later on this Sunday, Hull were playing again but they practically had a bye against a Carlisle side that had won just 2 of 27 matches in the season so far. They won 27-4 as expected and so all Wigan could do is keep winning and hope they slipped up in their two remaining games. They got the job done here against Oldham in a tough match that was played in "vile" rainy conditions. Despite the importance of the fixture, Alex Murphy had no hesitation in giving a debut to rookie Mike Ford at Scrum Half. A try from Dennis Ramsdale in the 14th Minute settled Wigan down at 5-0 with Parrish getting two points back with a penalty in the 32nd Minute. The only points second half came after just three minutes with a penalty from Whitfield completing the scoring at 7-2. Hull KR also backed up their Friday clash with a game against Warrington but their 9-9 draw meant their title bid was over.
