Summary:l

Jim Sullivan had been ruled out for a few weeks with his rib injury and Wigan could have done with his goal kicking here in this tight match against Second Placed Swinton. The weather was awful with rain lashing onto a muddy pitch and that contributed to an awful spectacle. Wigan took the lead with a penalty goal from Ken Gee but Hodgson levelled for Swinton with one of his own before half time. Swinton then kicked another penalty early in the second half with one newspaper accusing the Wigan crowd of bad sportsmanship for boo-ing whilst the kick was taken. That proved to be that but late in the game both Wigan's George Banks and Swinton's Wright were Sent Off for "improper methods of scrummaging".
