"One of the best cup ties in recent years" but it was St Helens who made the progression to Wembley by "out-playing" Wigan. They dominated the first half to lead 10-0 after tries from Alf Ellaby and Trevor Hall and two conversions from George Lewis. Another try from Ellaby, plus two more goals from Lewis, extended that lead to 17-0 before Wigan managed to get on the score sheet. Wigan got back to 17-7 after a try from Tom Beetham and two goals, one a penalty, from Jim Sullivan but Saints killed the tie with a converted try from Bill Mercer. Johnny Ring claimed a consolation with a great try for Wigan in the last minute, in which he scored from half way, but it was too little, too late. 24,000 attended this replay and like they had done on the Saturday, they set a new ground record, this time for Leigh's Mather Lane which was their home until 1940. £1,600 was added to the Rugby League Council's coffers, on top of the £4,300 the two semi finals on the Saturday had brought them. I'm sure they were made up!.
