Summary:l

Saints went ahead with a Billy Briers try for 3-0. That lead was later stretched to 8-0 when a penalty shot from Tom Foulkes rebounded back off the cross bar and Briers pounced to send Patrick Melvin over a try, Cuthbert Pennington adding the extras. Before half time Wigan reduced that lead to 8-2 with a penalty goal from Jack Anderton. In the second half, tries from first Tom Eckersley and then George Rigby brought Wigan back to 8-8 and although both sides had chances to win, neither took them and the game was drawn.
