WiganlTries:l George van Rooyen

Jim Sullivan 1


Wigan visited league leaders Swinton on an awful day weather wise. A mixture of fog and rain left the ground by heavy but Wigan settled down better to take an early 5-0 lead after a George van Rooyen try and Jim Sullivan conversion. Johnny Ring had gone mightily close to extending that lead soon after but his kick ahead just went dead before he could ground. That 5-0 lead was held till half time but the conditions favoured Swinton now after the break and they came fighting back.  B.Evans scored early second half to reduce that lead to 5-3. Then F.Evans scored to put Swinton 6-5 ahead before a late drop goal from J.Evans completed the scoring.
