With this season being a shorter season because of the impending 1996 switch to summer, the traditional Good Friday derby was not held, hence this Bank Holiday August fixture at Knowsley Road which was only the third match of the season. Wigan laid down an early marker with a spanking of Saints that begun with a try from Gary Connolly in the 9th Minute. Three goals from Frano Botica had contributed to a 10-0 lead by the 20th Minute but Wigan found four tries in the second quarter of the game with efforts from Andy Farrell, Nigel Wright, Simon Haughton and a second for Connolly put Wigan 32-0 ahead at half time. Martin Offiah went under the sticks for 38-0 after 9 minutes of the second half and although Saints did find 20 points in the last half hour the game still finished in a comfortable 52-20 win for Wigan.
