Summary:l

Oldham were top of the table but needed to win their remaining two games to have a chance of the title because Broughton below them had games in hand. They did a good job here with a demolition of Wigan who reached a new low in an already shockingly poor season. It was only 11-0 at half time though but Wigan collapsed massively after the break and conceded eleven tries in total.
