Wigan escaped with the victory at Knowsley Road. They
found themselves 6-4 down at half time and had to work hard second half to
find a try from Jim Leytham to nick the result. The win moved Wigan inside
the "Top 4" after Warrington, Wakefield and Hull all lost. That was a great
return considering Wigan had started December in 14th place.
