On the Friday prior to this game it had been announced
that Phil Clarke would be following Denis Betts to play in Australia. This
romp over Oldham saw Wigan equal Widnes' 1981-82 record for best start to a
season with 13 wins. Amazingly Widnes did not go on to claim the title that
season but Wigan continued to hold a five point lead after this. Tries from
Inga Tuigamala, Gary Connolly Paul Atcheson and Simon Haughton helped Wigan
into a 20-0 half time lead, despite Martin Offiah being sin binned. The
first try of the second half took a long time coming but once Connolly had
claimed his second, further scores followed for Denis Betts, Shaun Edwards,
Henry Paul and Kris Radlinski. Sean Long also made his Wigan debut off the subs bench.
