Report: 

Dreadful match in dreadful weather, ruined by referee Ian Smith who blew up for a new Super League Record, 32 penalties during the match.

Wigan dominated the first half terriotry but didn't have any conviction to open Wakefield up. I suppose its open to argument whether it was good Wakefield defence or poor Wigan attack. I'll say this though Wakefield defended with the driving rain in there faces and can be quite proud of the effort.

Wigan at one point received a penalty but tapped instead of "taking the two" and in the end got nothing.

It was all Wigan until some rare territory and conceded penalties gave Wakefield two shots at goal which Tony Martin took to make it 4-0 after 28 minutes.

Wigan soon hit back with a try from Sean O'Loughlin on 34 minutes which made it 6-4 after Richards converted. O'Loughlin took a short ball from Mick Higham to drive his way over through the massed defence on the Wakefield line.

It honesty it was probably Wigan's only clear cut chance of the game despite dominating territory.

Into the second half and Wigan still couldn't break through Wakefield despite an early sin binning to Jason Golden. Just has he returned though Wigan had a penalty which Richards kicked to make it 8-4 with 27 minutes left

Amazingly that is how it would finished. Neither side looked like scoring in a month of Sundays except Wakefield who had a three consecutive sets attempt on the Wigan line with about 12 minutes left but that failure to score saw Wigan home.

Whether it was the weather I don't know but it was an awful game but thankfully Wigan once again took the 2 points on offer.
