Wigan went into this Good Friday battle against St Helens knowing that if they won, the title would be secured with two games to spare. Saints began by bombing first a penalty goal shot from Bobbie Goulding and then a possible try for Tommy Martyn before Frano Botica kicked Wigan 2-0 ahead. But Saints took the lead on 13 minutes when a grubber from Goulding was touched down by Shane Cooper under the posts a 6-2 lead. Five minutes later a good angled run from Denis Betts got Wigan back in front at 8-6, then Saints scored again with Steve Prescott for 12-8 to them before Va'aiga Tuigamala scored an unconverted try in the right corner for 12-12. That deadlock sat for ten minutes before a break from Henry Paul from half way saw him go all the way after a poor tackle attempt from Prescott.

Conversion had put Wigan 18-12 at the break and into the second half Shaun Edwards looping pass got Martin Offiah in the left corner for 22-12 on 48 minutes. Wigan quickly scored another in fortuitous fashion. A drop out by Wigan was let bounce by Saints and Henry Paul nipped in between two doddering Saints men to return it under the posts. That was 28-12 and game over pretty much. Saints did reduce the lead to 28-18 with a second try from Shane Cooper but Martin Hall wrapped up the performance and the title with a try four minutes from time.
