Station Road in Swinton had only opened a month earlier but was chosen as the venue for this Semi Final tie between Wigan and St Helens Recreation. The prize for the winners of the Semi Finals was to play in the first Challenge Cup Final to be played at Wembley Stadium in London. During the first 15 minutes of the tie, Jim Sullivan missed three attempts at penalty goals and was made to pay for that with Recs taking the lead with a drop goal (worth two points until 1974-1975) from Heaton. Then Dingsdale scored a magnificent try and after Pyke converted, Recs were 7-0 ahead. Jim Sullivan reduced that lead by finally kicking a penalty before half time but Wigan had work to do with a 7-2 deficit scoreline. It was only the 66th Minute when Wigan levelled the scores. Tommy Parker broke through and sent Lou Brown over, with Sullivan converting for 7-7. Wigan did all the late pressing but Brown was denied a second, and winning, try in the last minute by a superb by Dingsdale near the corner flag. The sites would have to try again in the midweek. 24,728 attended.
