Wigan had to do without call ups again for this trip to play Leeds. A Wales v England game was taking place in Swansea with Martin Ryan and Joe Egan in the England side. Wales won that game 11-3 whilst Wigan earned a great win at Headingley with Jack Taylor crossing for four of Wigan's eight tries.
