Having been humbled in the Challenge Cup Semi Final the previous Saturday, Wigan set out to make sure they didn't waste their whole season's effort in the Championship Play Offs. They began with the visit of 4th placed Batley to Central Park, but the conditions were awful after heavy rain fell for much of the day. This led to a heavy pitch and a hard slog for the two teams but it was Batley who got to grips better, taking a 2-0 penalty goal lead and only Wigan's defence stopped them scoring more. Before the break though Wigan found a try from Jack Barton that was converted by Jim Leytham for a 5-2 lead. At half time, Wigan sorted out their wet weather tactics and performed far better. Once Gomer Gunn scored a converted try for 10-2, Wigan had control for the rest of the game and won 18-2 in the end.
