Summary:l

Wigan's shock First Round cup exit at the hands of Oldham left them with just the league title to play for. It was a big dangling carrot though with Wigan having not won the league title since 1960. Castleford had also exited the cup in Round 1, so the clubs were able to re-arranged this match that had been postponed in October on the day Round 2 ties were being played. Castleford had led 6-4 at half time but Wigan would push on after the break to earn a hard fought victory, failure to convert any of their four tries making it tougher than it perhaps should of been.
