This game was played in heavy thick fog that made
visibility difficult for the watching spectators. One Wigan supporter
described this as "the worst game the crowd never saw". Remember no flood
flights in these days so it difficult to see beyond 40 metres, especially
when it was going dark in the second half. The game was played to it's
conclusion though with Salford running away with it in the end.
