Jim Sullivan 1, Tommy Howley 1


"Wigan disappointing" was the headline as their season ended at Hull KR. Rovers forwards were "smarter" than Wigan's and they thoroughly deserved their win. Hoult had given KR a dropped goal 2-0 lead then Austin scored a try for a 5-0 lead. A further try by Bielby and a penalty goal by Osborne then had them 10-0 up. Only a penalty goal from Jim Sullivan reduced that to 10-2 at half time. Wigan were "much better" second half but Rovers defended their lead magnificently. The only score Wigan found was a Tommy Howley drop goal for 10-4 but a two score lead was too much to overcome in the end and Harris scored a clincher for Rovers late in the game. This meant Wigan's season was over, so instead of attending a Championship Final on 2nd May, Wiganers could instead take one last ride on the town's trams, that were about to be replaced by  "trackless trolley buses"!!
