Wigan played this match against Castleford without temporary coach Eric Ashton who was playing in the Second Ashes Test for Great Britain against Australia at Swinton. They unfortunately got smashed 50-12 by the tourists and Wigan went down here as well to tin hat a poor day. Ashton though was made player-coach two days later on a permanent basis.
