Summary:l

Wigan had played a tour match against Carcassonne and a second leg cup tie at Featherstone in the three days prior to this match. Hardly ideal preparation for the visit of third placed Widnes to Central Park. That said, Widnes were out of practice having not played a league game since 25th January due to the cold weather (although they played two cup ties). In the end here, Wigan proved to fast for Widnes and the win took them four clear of them in the table.
