Halifax had taken a huge step to the title in the midweek
when a last minute try from player-coach Chris Anderson had seen nick
victory away from York 10-6. Halifax didn't play on this particular Sunday
so Wigan, along with Widnes and St Helens, still had to keep up the chase
and a trip to Castleford was a tough one for Wigan with them having won
twice at Central Park during the season. Wigan looked comfortable 14-2 at
half time but second half they looked tired, like against Warrington, and in
the end were sweating on a 14-12 advantage. They just about hung on.
