Had Wigan beaten Warrington (lost by 4), Hull (lost to last minute try) and Hull KR (lost by 8) they would have been four points behind Widnes heading into this game and with two games still in hand . That would have been huge excitement with title chances massively on the line. Instead Wigan kicked this off ten points behind Widnes and they had no hope catching them. It was perhaps a frustrating afternoon because Wigan totally dominated Widnes but many perhaps would have left Central Park wondering where this form had been in the previous three games.

A good solo run from Andy Gregory opened the scoring before Andy Goodway steamed under the posts for a second try. Joe Lydon had kicked three goals with only Duncan Platt replying with a penalty in a 14-2 half time score. Widnes hopes extinguished when a wild offload by Andy Currier went to ground and Joe Lydon scooped up to score. Lydon would claim a second try before Tony Iro scored to wrap up a 28-2 success. The result had done a massive favour to St Helens title hopes as well but Wigan would be meeting them in their next match.

Half Time:  

Wigan 14 Widnes 2
