Summary:l

The delay in Wigan's Cup Quarter Final against Bradford gave them just 40 hours to prepare for this Good Friday battle with St Helens. The match was played just thirteen after the sides had met at Central Park and Saints gained quick revenge for their defeat in that game. Wigan led 10-5 at half time but tiredness beat them in the end.
