Summary:l

A Cumberland v Lancashire county match saw a weaker Salford side than normal and Wigan took advantage to earn a great win at the third placed side. The game was played in awful weather but a Benny Rouse try helped Wigan into a 5-0 half time lead and further tries from first Alex Duffy and then E.Dickinson. Due to Bad Light the match was ended after 70 minutes but the result would stand.
