Summary:l

If Wigan had a bogey team at this period in their history, perhaps St Helens Recreation were it. This was the fourth time in a row they had beaten Wigan, and the third time within this season. It was a big win for Recs because they were sweating on fourth place within the "Top 4" play off positions. Wigan meanwhile "never seem able to show their true form".
