A few weeks earlier, Wigan had sold Colin Whitfield to Halifax after signing Joe Lydon from Widnes and they might have regretted it after this game. Wigan's undersoil heating meant it was the only league game to go ahead on this Sunday and it was a big one between second placed Halifax and third placed Wigan. The only score in the first half was from a David Stephenson penalty for 2-0 and he made it 4-0 in the 43rd Minute with another. Halifax responded with a try from Paul Dixon in the 50th Minute but the missed conversion left the score at 4-4. Wigan chipped back ahead with a third penalty from 40 yards on 63 minutes but Colin Whitfield kicked against his only club to level with a 70th Minute penalty. 6-6 is how it remained until the end. The result meant Wigan trailed Halifax by seven points and would need to win all four of their games in hand to catch them.

Half Time: 

Wigan 2 Halifax 0
