Summary:l

25,000 turned out for this clash against Barrow which saw Wigan "never master a good Barrow pack" but still do enough for the victory. Ces Mountford's try had put Wigan into a 3-0 lead but a try from Longman saw Barrow level at 3-3 by half time. In the second half a penalty from Mountford edged Wigan 5-3 up before Brian Nordgren "scored easily" to wrap up the win after Mountford converted for a 10-3 end scoreline. Good news elsewhere had seen Widnes surprisingly fall 5-2 at home to Leigh which allowed Wigan to cut their lead to two points at the top.
