25,000 turned out for this midweek game which was an
encounter between second and third place in the table. But Huddersfield were
"overwhelmed" by a strong Wigan performance. Syd Jerram scored a
controversial try on 12 minutes to opening the scoring, despite it looking
like Huddersfield's Gwyn Thomas had grounded the ball in goal. Sullivan
converted for 5-0. Then Jerram added a drop goal (worth two points) for 7-0.
By half time Danny Hurcombe had scored with Sullivan's conversion putting
Wigan into a 12-0 lead. Hurcombe scored a second before half time then Wigan
mad hay whilst Huddersfield's Gwyn Thomas was off the field with an injury.
Jerry Shea and Ernie Shaw both scored during this period that the visitors
were down to 12 men. Wigan now had a 25-0 lead after 53 minutes but despite
Huddersfield scoring next through May, Hurcombe completed his hat-trick in
the final quarter before Tommy Howley claimed Wigan's seventh try in a 31-5
