Wigan had got the chequebook out in the midweek to sign
Andy Platt from St Helens for £140,000. He made his debut in the second row
here as Wigan welcomed Hull KR to Central Park. This match had been tight up
to the hour with the 8-4 half time score becoming 14-10 by the 60th Minute
but Wigan kicked on to win by sixteen in the end. Joe Lydon's try was the
100th of his career. Meanwhile, Ellery Hanley had been "knocked senseless"
after half an hour of Balmain's Grand Final loss to Cronulla. Hanley's
future at Wigan was still remaining a question mark but he was now due to
return home to the club.
