Summary:l

Wigan had been taking advantage of opponents going down to 12 men with injury recently and another one here helped them romp to a massive victory over Belle Vue Rangers just seven days before the sides would contest the Lancashire Cup Final. Belle Vue's Clinton damaged his shoulder after just eight minutes and Wigan would take advantage to score 16 tries. They never let up after leading 26-0 at half time, adding a further 42 points after the interval.
