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.
