Summary:l

Wigan hadn't played in the league for almost a month and returned to league action with problems off the field. First Team players took strike action in argument over bonus payments for the John Player Trophy victory over New Hunslet. This left Wigan having to change all thirteen players for this match against Warrington whilst the team list included three "A.N Others". Despite this, Wigan competed well to only be 11-7 down at the break but fell away second half.
