With the two sides sandwiching Wigan in Second Place (Widnes and Warrington) playing each other, it was up to Wigan to take their own advantage with a good display against Salford on Christmas Day. They did just that with a good win but leaders Widnes won their derby over Wire with a 7-3 success seeing them hold their four point lead at the top.
