Castleford had led the table for most of the season but their league title hopes were blowing up in recent weeks. Wigan continued that fall here with an excellent hard fought win but were left worried by Andy Gregory being taken off on a stretcher in the 13th Minute with a suspected broken ankle. A try from Ellery Hanley and three goals from Joe Lydon helped Wigan to lead 10-0 but a try from David Roockley brought Castleford back to 10-4 by half time. Dean Bell's try got Wigan the win in the second half. Elsewhere, Wigan got hope in the title race with Widnes slipping up at home to Bradford. They still remained three points ahead of Wigan but Wigan still had Widnes to play if they could narrow that gap further. Leeds remained top after a narrow 12-10 win at Warrington.

Half Time:  Castleford 4 Wigan 10


Referee:  Frank Tickle (St Helens)
