Wigan opened the 1929-30 season making only one change
from the side that had won the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley the previous
May. Dai Jones came in for Wilf Hodder, to highlight that Wigan didn't have
any new signings to unleash. It was a losing start for Wigan, but injury to
Arthur Binks left him struggling for most of the second half and Leigh took
advantage of the extra man.
