Once again Wigan produced another example of sloppy
second half play, this time they wouldn't get away with it like they had
done the previous Sunday against Hunslet. All had been great first half with
tries from Joe Lydon (2), Kevin Iro and Andy Goodway helping them towards a
22-6 lead with only Kevin McCormack replying for Saints. In the 50th Minute
though Andy Platt sent Phil Veivers in for a score and the momentum would be
completely with Saints when a second try for Veivers, from a Shane Cooper
kick, was touched down on 61 minutes. The score was now 22-20 and they kept
their pressure up with two more tries in as many minutes from Dave Tanner
and Les Quirk that made it 30-22. Wigan still had time to come back but they
couldn't get going and they finished embarrassed at an almighty collapse.
Paul Loughlin added a late penalty and Saints went home with a bit of joy
after losing a lot of face earlier in the month in losing the Adrian
Shelford court case against Wigan, at a cost of £50,000 to the club.
