Summary:l

Two weeks ago Wigan looked in an almighty strong position at the top of the table but losing to Oldham for the second Saturday in a row changed the tide of the table completely. After a scoreless first half, a try from Rix put Oldham 3-0 up. That lead was only doubled by a late try from Thomas on a heavy pitch. Wigan had won 21 of their first 23 matches in this season, but had now lost 4 of their last 7.
