Broughton scored the first try but it was disallowed
because the "scorer" had pushed the Wigan Full Back in the back. Just before
half time Wigan claimed the first try. It was described as "lucky" for Bill
Yates after he just plonked down a ball that had rebounded to him from a
Broughton player. E.Webster converted to put Wigan into a 5-0 lead. In the
second half Jimmy Walkden kicked a drop goal to make it 9-0 to Wigan and
that proved enough for the win.
Try - 3 points. Conversion - 2 points. Drop Goal - 4 points. Penalty - 3
points. Goal from Mark - 4 points.
