This fixture was doubling up as a "benefit match" for
both of Wigan's long serving Jim Sharrock and Jim Leytham with the gate
receipts going to them. That ensured a big crowd for this match against
Broughton that was harder fought than the end score suggests. Wigan had been
12-3 up at half time but Broughton reduced that to 12-6 early in the second
half and that score held until the hour mark. Once Wigan broke a long
deadlock to go 17-6 ahead, Broughton collapsed and it was 30-6 in the end.
Defeat for Hull away at Oldham meant Wigan were now top of the table.
