Drama before the kick off at Knowsley Road on this day with the club having to lock the gates when the crowd had swelled to 27,500, which was almost 5,000 higher than the record attendance at the ground. Many supporters were left outside unable to get into the ground. The sides had exchanged penalty goals during the first half and that proved to be it for the scoring. But St Helens Lou Houghton sent off during the second half for "Dissent" and for the last thirty minutes they had to endure constant Wigan pressure. Alf Frodsham was also struggling with injury, so Saints were happy to force a replay.
