Summary:l

Saints went 3-0 ahead early after a try from George Liversage and later good work from James Crossley got Jim Barnes over to make it 6-0. That proved to be that with William Straughan denying Barnes a further try late in the game. Wigan's 100% losing record continued on and with Tyldesley beating Millom 8-3, Wigan fell to the bottom of the table.
