With this season being a shorter season because
of the impending 1996 switch to summer, the traditional Good Friday derby
was not held, hence this Bank Holiday August fixture at Knowsley Road which
was only the third match of the season. Wigan laid down an early marker with
a spanking of Saints that begun with a try from Gary Connolly in the 9th
Minute. Three goals from Frano Botica had contributed to a 10-0 lead by the
20th Minute but Wigan found four tries in the second quarter of the game
with efforts from Andy Farrell, Nigel Wright, Simon Haughton and a second
for Connolly put Wigan 32-0 ahead at half time. Martin Offiah went under the
sticks for 38-0 after 9 minutes of the second half and although Saints did
find 20 points in the last half hour the game still finished in a
comfortable 52-20 win for Wigan.
