After the false start the previous Saturday, Wigan's new
undersoil heating made it's debut to ensure this visit of Swinton went ahead
without any frost problems and was one of only two games on this day to go
ahead. It was a match in which Wigan gave a debut to South African Ray Mordt
on the right wing and Wigan put on a good show despite poor conditions.
Swinton would have been happy only conceding one try to David Stephenson in
the first half hour but tries in the 33rd and 36th minute for Graeme West
and Ellery Hanley had Wigan 18-0 up at half time. Wigan never relented after
the break with Nicky Kiss, Mike Ford (twice), Nick Du Toit and Henderson
Gill all scoring in a 42-0 win.
