Summary:l

A match that was played in thick fog. Wigan took the lead with a try from Jack Hilton but by half time Warrington had levelled the scores 3-3. Wigan then went 6-3 up with Jim Sharrock's try early in the second half but Warrington finished stronger to score two tries in the latter part of the match. So Wigan's mini revival had was now a distant memory with three defeats in a row now leaving them just one place above the drop zone.
