The pitch at Central Park was waterlogged and Wigan
really didn't want to play this game, but Hull really didn't want to travel
again so the game kicked off as scheduled. Remember their were no motorways
before 1960, so travelling wasn't so easy by train. The match lasted 55
minutes before finally being abandoned.
The Match was Declared Null and Void and was replayed match on
Saturday 21st April 1928 (3:30pm).
