WiganlTries:l Attie van Heerden



Wigan suffered their first league defeat in ten matches since September 6th against Swinton who had also beaten them on the opening day of the season at Central Park. It was a 2nd v 3rd in the table clash and with this win Swinton went top of the table. Wigan though were hampered by not only Danny Hurcombe being Sent Off in just the 15th Minute, but also Jack Price been withdrawn from the field injured. Swinton's pack began to naturally dominated with the two man advantage but it was only a penalty goal from Morris that gave them the lead. Amazingly Wigan hit back with a try from Attie van Heerden which had put them 3-2 ahead but by half time F.Evans scored for Swinton to make it 5-3. That was the end of the scoring but Wigan actually were unlucky not to win the match late. A great Wigan effort considering the circumstances.
