These sides were 2nd and 3rd in the league table heading into this Lancashire Cup Final at Salford. It was a tight opening with Leigh being unlucky not to score an early try, Mooney was deemed to have a foot in touch before going over. Leigh did get a 2-0 lead though with a penalty goal from Mooney. Jim Sullivan retaliated with a levelling penalty goal before errors from Leigh contributed to very quick back to back tries for Johnny Ring and Bert Webster. Leigh had made a bright start but all of a sudden they were 8-2 down and they really never recovered their composure. Tommy Howley then returned a Leigh kick for a try, which put Wigan into a 13-2 half time lead. Sullivan added another penalty goal after half time for 15-2, after which Leigh did try to rally but to no avail. Webster's second try rounded off the scoring for Wigan in a 20-2 win. "After such a promising start, Leigh's big defeat was astounding" claimed one newspaper. Wigan had sealed their fifth Lancashire Cup success.
