Summary:l

Irony of ironies. Wigan's First Team players returned to action having been on strike for the previous two matches over a cup tie winning bonus. However they lost to the team they had beaten to trigger the dispute in the first place. John Wood made his debut having signed from Widnes but the last month had been horrible for Wigan and this loss tin hatted it.
