Summary:l

With the third test between England and Australia having been postponed in December, Wigan were allowed to postpone their match for the re-arranged date with Martin Ryan, Johnny Lawrenson, Ken Gee, Joe Egan and Bill Hudson all involved in the test match which Britain won 23-9 to seal the series 2-1. That luxury however was not afford as England played another test match on this particular Saturday. The same fivesome were unavailable as England lost 14-10 to Wales in Swansea. Meanwhile back home, Wigan still had no trouble beating Oldham despite the absences.
