Summary:l

If Wigan beat Brighouse they were safe from relegation but losing to them meant they were still sweating, enough those Brighouse still needed to win all their remaining matches and Wigan lose all of their last four. St Helens also got a draw on this day which meant they still had hope but it was by the narrowest of threads.
