Goals: Paul Bishop 1


A penalty goal from Paul Bishop put Saints 2-0 ahead but a try from Steve Hampson put Wigan into a 6-2 lead in the 7th Minute. That score held all the way to half time with Saints fans bemoaning a no try against George Mann. Wigan took further control with a second try being scored during a spell when Tea Ropati was sin binned for punching Kelvin Skerrett. Shaun Edwards finished a move that had begun with a burst from Frano Botica down the right wing from 80 metres out. Saints screamed for a double movement but referee John Holdsworth allowed the try and Wigan went 12-2 up. Wigan began to struggle with injuries. They'd already been disrupted by losing Martin Dermott and Andy Platt and now Martin Offiah limped all over the place, but had to stay on the field with no substitutes remaining. A try from Gary Connolly brought Saints back to 12-6 on 57 minutes but a poor missed conversion kept Wigan a converted try ahead. It was all about survival from Wigan in the final quarter and Frano Botica's drop goal eased the pressure with Wigan winning 13-6. After the game Saints coach Mike McClennan was asked if his side had mental problems when facing Wigan. "Bullshit" was his response before he stormed out of the press conference.
