A week after losing away to Oldham in the
Challenge Cup, Wigan returned for a big clash at the top of the table. The
visiting Wigan side had been unlucky the previous week to lose Lance Todd to
injury and thus playing the whole second half with twelve men. It was 3-0 at
half time to Wigan after Lew Bradley's try but that was quickly narrowed to
3-2 early in the second half before Jim Sharrock kicked a penalty for 5-2 to
Wigan. The big play came later when Joe Miller forced his way over for a try
and Wigan saw their 8-2 lead through to the end. The loss saw Oldham fall
out of the top four with St Helens taking over.
