Venue: Chorley Road, Swinton Competition: War Emergency League
1. William Jolley, 2. Lew Bradley, 3. Jim Sherrington, 4. Frank
Walford, 5. Ted Smith, 6. George Hesketh, 7. Peter Heaton
8. Arthur Francis, 9. Harry Banks,
10. Bill Banks, 11. Bert Barnes, 12. Bill Melling, 13. Whalley
Both sides had 100% records coming into the
game and when Lew Bradley scored his 10th try of the season to put Wigan 3-0
up the prospects of an away victory looked good. But by half time Swinton
had built up an 8-3 lead and by the end they had "completely demoralised"
Wigan into their first defeat of the young season.
