The signs of tiredness were now becoming obvious for Wigan but they somehow ground out another victory in this Easter Monday clash at Oldham, on a poor Watersheddings pitch. A penalty from Frano Botica put Wigan ahead but Richard Irving's try put Oldham 4-2 up at half time. They held that until the 53rd Minute when Denis Betts scored a converted try for an 8-4 Wigan lead. Their task was made all the harder with a red card for Kelvin Skerrett who had already spent ten minutes in the sin bin earlier in the game for elbowing Richard Russell. Botica eased the nerves with a second penalty goal but although he was wide of the mark with a drop goal attempt, it proved enough for the win. Elsewhere, Castleford and Hull were playing each other and Hull's slender 14-12 victory completed a miserable and costly easter for Cas. Widnes' 20-12 win over Saints made up for their cup semi loss to them on Easter Saturday.
