Warrington had gone top of the table on Good Friday but for the fact they had played three games more than Wigan, and two more than second placed Bradford, meant they still weren't favourites to win the league title. These two had to concentrate on their own jobs in this 3pm kick off but it may have been difficult to escape news that Bradford, who kicked off at 1:30pm, were amazingly trailing Hull at Odsal 26-8 at half time. Bradford did manage to get back to lose just 32-30 but only two stoppage time tries got them that close and the Odsal bowl had already emptied in disgust long before the full time hooter with Bradford falling to a third defeat in four matches.

The news of Bradford's loss will have drifted across the Central Park terraces in the early stages of this match and it looked like Wigan would take the best advantage with a fantastic first half display. They took the lead with Phil Clarke and Kelvin Skerrett combined to get Shaun Edwards over and soon after Botica kicked a penalty for 8-0. That lead was extended to 14-0 by half time after Sam Panapa crossed. All looked sweet but it soon went sour. Over the next 27 minutes, two tries from Mark Forster and one from Andrew Bennett had got Warrington all the way back to 14-14 and Wigan went into an immense flap with 13 minutes to go. Crucially, Warrington's young kicker Iestyn Harris only converted the last try and that was costly when with seven minutes to go, Frano Botica re-established a lead with a drop goal that went over off the post. That 15-14 lead was sweated on mightily in a tense finish but their was much relief when Mick Cassidy crossed to seal a massive win in stoppage time.
