Wigan "faced a strong wind and bright sun" in the first half but managed to hang in to only be 2-0 down at half time. Second Half Wigan had built a 10-2 lead after tries from Benny Davidson and Len Mason, Jim Sullivan converted the latter try and kicked a penalty goal. Recs had been a bit of a bogey side against Wigan in recent times and they were made to sweat when Recs claimed a converted try with three minutes to go but Wigan held on to their 10-7 lead.
