Summary:l

This was a 1st v 2nd contest but Wigan had already cantered easily to the title and were 11 points clear of Saints in 2nd place. So rather than what could of been a title decider it was a match in which Saints rested ten players ahead of their forthcoming Challenge Cup Final against Halifax at Wembley. Phil Veivers, Paul Loughlin, Mark Elia, Kevin McCormack, Brett Clark, Neil Holding, Tony Burke, Graham Liptrot, Andy Platt and Chris Arkwright all played at Wembley, but were absent here. Despite that, Saints competed well to lead twice during the first half with Wigan being disrupted by the loss of Shaun Edwards to a knee ligament injury in the 16th Minute. But a Ellery Hanley double helped Wigan to recover into an 18-12 lead by half time and they won the second half 30-0.
