This was a big game in the top 4 play off race
and a loss that would prove very costly indeed for Wigan in the final shake
up. Having won a cup tie 8-7 in midweek, they lost by the same score here.
Liverpool had already had three chances before taking a 12th Minute lead
with a try from Maloney. Wigan though had a 4-3 lead by half time after Jim
Sullivan kicked two penalty goals. That was a flattering lead and Liverpool
were back in front soon after half time with a drop goal (worth two points
here) from Glover. He then scored a try in the 57th Minute to make it 8-4
with 23 minutes to go. Wigan rallied in the final ten minutes to find a try
from Jack Garvey but Sullivan's penalty was just wide before he missed a
penalty goal in the last minute. Either kick being made would have won the
game for Wigan. Such a narrow difference between being three points behind
Liverpool or one point ahead of them.
