Summary:l

A second half penalty goal from Jack Anderton put Wigan 2-0 but he had to pull off a try saving tackle in the dying moments to ensure Wigan hung on to win this final match of the league season. Although Wigan's form had been much better since December, they still finished the season with only Tyldesley below them in the table. Meanwhile, the title went down to a last day decider with Runcorn playing Oldham. Runcorn won 3-0 to win the league on a nervy afternoon at Canal Street.
