Barrow were near the bottom of the table so this was a shock result. Wigan struggled playing in a strong wind first half and Barrow made hay with converted tries from Thornborrow, Job and Doyle. That put them 15-0 up at half time. With the wind advantage having now turned around, Wigan didn't take long in reducing that scoreline early in the second half but in a frantic finish, Barrow managed to hang on to inflict Wigan's third defeat of the league campaign. Victories for the five sides immediately below Wigan at the top of the table narrow their lead at the top.
