Well Wigan had to move on from their cup exit and try to
ensure they sealed first place in the table. They had lost four out of ten
matches since January 9th and the late season collapse of two seasons prior
to this was perhaps in their minds. Salford started this match on fire but
didn't get on the score sheet. Before half time, Attie van Heerden and Tommy
Parker had scored to give Wigan a 6-0 lead. They pushed on second half to
record a good win. Elsewhere 2nd place Warrington were away at 3rd placed
Swinton and the latter claiming victory was a good result for Wigan in the
table. Warrington had now suffered back to back league defeats, taking
pressure off Wigan in First.
