Summary:l

It was not often in Wigan Highfield's short period in the league that they could take the limelight away from Wigan, but on this day perhaps they did. Even though Wigan were playing a 1st v 2nd League match against Warrington, Highfield were playing a Challenge Cup Semi Final against Oldham at Salford. Highfield sadly lost but Wigan managed to spank Warrington, who hadn't lost at Wilderspool before this day all season. Wigan were 16-0 up at half time and they never stepped off the accelerator all game. An excellent performance.
