A poor performance by Wigan who took Wakefield "too
lightly". Wigan hadn't lost at Central Park for almost 12 months but came
unstuck against mid table Wakefield. Wigan did lead 4-0 at half time after
two Jim Sullivan penalty goals but early second half Wakefield took a 5-4
lead with an converted try from Pearce. Johnny Ring later restored Wigan's
lead with a drop goal (worth two points until 1974) but a penalty goal from
Pollard put Wakefield back in front with a massive penalty goal from the
half way line. That left Wakefield 7-6 up and they hung on!
