This was one of only four out of ten matches to
survive the severe snow and frost spell that had hit the country. Because of
the war time it wasn't cost effective for clubs to go to the effort of
covering pitches but despite the weather, this game survived to be on. The
match did kick off late but Wigan's roll of six consecutive wins was halted
when Salford turned a 3-2 half time deficit into a 7-6 victory.
