Summary: 

This was a tough match for Wigan on Easter Monday at Oldham just 48 hours after Wigan's Cup Semi Final against Warrington. But at the beginning of the match, Wigan raced away into a 20-0 lead after just 18 minutes after a hat-trick of tries from Shaun Edwards and one from Denis Betts. Oldham had amazingly fought back to lead 21-10 by the 54th Minute but Wigan managed to rally again to win with Tony Iro getting a try and Andy Gregory kicking a drop goal on top of his three conversions in the game.
