Wigan returned to Rochdale where they had played a week
earlier in the Challenge Cup Semi Final, a match in which a supporter from
Rochdale had died when part of a stand collapsed. Wigan had fallen 5-0 down
very early in this game but recovered to win easily against a weakened home
team. Johnny Lawrenson and Hector Gee's try had put Wigan 8-5 up at half
time and they stepped up the gears second half to add four more tries.
