Halifax found another slender victory two days before
this game by beating Bradford 8-2 at a heavily waterlogged Thrum Hall. That
left them just a point away from the title and they would have clinched it
here had Wigan slipped up against Bradford. The Northern side was pretty
weak though and their was no sign of the second half slips of recent games
with Wigan building good on their 20-2 half time lead.
