A result that can only be described as a
shocker for Wigan. Ebbw Vale had won just 2 of their 23 matches in the
league this season and no one would have given the Welsh side any hope
against Wigan. Especially when Wigan took a 5-0 lead after 20 minutes with
Percy Williams' converted try. But tries either side of half time from first
Llewellyn and then Billingham saw Ebbw Vale claim a famous midweek victory,
witnessed by 3,000 supporters.
