Jim Sullivan 1


"Sullivan scores his 2,000th point" was the headline from this game as Jim Sullivan reached 2,000 points for Wigan since he had joined in August 1921. This game was played in "wretched conditions" with just a George Owens try, converted by Sullivan, separating the two teams. Meanwhile Wigan had transfer listed South African second row George van Rooyen who had joined Wigan from Hull KR in November 1923. Though he was transfer listed he still remained at the club for another twelve months.
