Wigan took the lead with a Colin Tyrer penalty but a try from Les Jones put Saints 3-2 ahead. That score stuck for a while until Tyrer put Wigan 5-3 up at Half Time with an unconverted try. The game ended up being decided with Saints scoring three tries between the 51st and 58th Minutes. Tries for Billy Benyon, Tom van Vollenhoven and a second try for Jones took Saints into a 16-5 lead that was only dented in the last quarter by a try from Doug Laughton.
