Summary: 

This game at relegation threatened Featherstone kicked off at 6:15pm, due to Live Sky Coverage, so Wigan could start knowing the afternoon's other results. The news was good. Second Placed St Helens had lost 30-18 away at Warrington meaning Wigan were two points clear top with two games in hand even before this game at Post Office Road started. Wigan produced a thoroughly professional job with tries from Frano Botica, Martin Offiah, David Myers and Kelvin Skerrett helped Wigan to a 22-3 half time lead and Dean Bell's try after half time took Wigan out to 26-3. Featherstone did score 10 points themselves at the back end of the game but Shaun Edward's try wrapped up a good effort. Wigan now only needed one league point from three league matches to clinch the title.
