After a bewildering opening day defeat to a 12 man
Castleford the previous Sunday, news came through on the Thursday that
Ellery Hanley had finally been sold to Leeds for £250,000. Given the start,
the prospect of facing Widnes was perhaps a daunting on but Wigan produced a
good display in a match that kicked off at 6:15pm at the request of
broadcaster Sky Sports who had committed to showing a Live Match every
Sunday Evening in this season. This game had been tight though with a 20-18
score line until Frano Botica scored the match clinching try in the 79th
Wigan 18 Widnes 8
