Wigan would have gone four points clear at the
top of the table with victory in this game, but it ended up being a total
disaster for them. Wigan took a 6-0 lead after just three minutes but the
match quickly unravelled to finish with their heaviest defeat since losing
58-3 at Leeds in 1972. Not only that, they lost Martin Offiah with a
dislocated shoulder after just 14 minutes, whilst Denis Betts suffered a hip
injury and both Dean Bell and Andy Platt hand injuries. St Helens meanwhile
took full advantage and earned one of their best wins ever at Knowsley Road.
It certainly gave them full believe that a title shot was now well on the
agenda, with Wigan's lead at the top reduced to points difference only,
albeit still with a game in hand.
