Wigan were without test stars Eric Ashton, Mick Sullivan, Dave Bolton and Brian McTigue who were fighting out a 17-17 draw against France at St Helens. Wigan in their absence did beat Halifax but did so by chipping themselves towards victory with four penalty goals added to two tries from Syd Fenton.
