Summary:l

Playing in the John Player Trophy Final and Challenge Cup Preliminary Round had left Wigan lame in the league for three weeks since they had played Widnes on 4th January. Warrington had gone clear top the weekend prior to this game and held on to their lead with a 24-18 away victory over fourth placed Castleford on this afternoon. Wigan and Saints both won to maintain the pressure but Wigan did it hard at Hull KR with Joe Lydon, Ellery Hanley, Shaun Edwards and Andy Goodway all backing up 24 hours after playing for Great Britain against France at Headingley. David Stephenson and Henderson Gill also played in the Test but didn't play here. Wigan's win was based on a good first half and solid defence.
