Just 10 days before this semi final, Wigan were on a 8 match winning streak and looking hot towards achieving a league and cup double. But a third defeat in eight days now left them wilting. Newspaper reports point to the absence of Syd Jerram and Danny Hurcombe, injured in the previous week's defeat at Broughton, "severly hampering them", whilst also noting that the weather was poor. Wigan had led 5-0 after 20 minutes following Tommy Howley's try. But by half time tries from Stone and Taylor, plus a goal from Kennedy, had put Hull into a 8-3 lead. "Snow fell heavily" during half time but despite Hull having the snow in their faces, their forwards "rose to the occassion". Kennedy's interception of a George Owens pass put them further ahead before Beasty converted another Wigan error to seal the win.
