With the switch to summer rugby imminent, this would be the last competitive Boxing Day Wigan v Saints derby. Wigan's shock loss to Oldham had opened up a big opportunity for Saints to win the title but they blew their chance really by losing away at Castleford on December 20th. So instead of a big top of the table clash, Saints were forgetting about the league and claiming injuries ahead of Regal Trophy Semi Final against Warrington just four days later. So the last Christmas derby was basically ruined by Saints playing a full reserve team. Despite the weak side, Saints did well for 20 minutes but were ultimately demolished by a far superior Wigan side. Scott Quinnell scored four tries and for some reason Neil Cowie laid into Andy Haigh to get sent off with ten minutes to go.

Wigan 20 St Helens 0
