Jim Sullivan 1


"Wigan's Cup Shock" read the headlines. Despite Halifax being the cup holders, few predicted they would come to Central Park and progress. This mainly was due to Wigan's historic strength at Central Park in the Challenge Cup, in which they had won 38 out of 39 home ties since the cup had began in 1897 with only Huddersfield claiming a win in 1928. Ted Spillane in the halves was outplayed by his opposite number, Hanson, for Halifax and that contributed to a dominating Halifax performance. Wigan couldn't get going even when Halifax spent 20 minutes of the second half with 12 men after injury to their full back. They were thoroughly beaten.
