Summary:l

A second half drop goal from Dicky Rothwell saw Wigan finally win for the first time in 12 league games since 12th January. It was a pivotal result with it ensuring that they were safe from relegation. As it turned out both St Helens and Brighouse lost to relegate themselves regardless of the Wigan result but to end that run of games without a win must have been a relief. Meanwhile Salford went top of the table in winning a game in hand on this day, which had been against Saints.
