Summary:l

Three days after knocking St Helens Recreation out of the Lancashire Cup at City Road, Wigan returned to suffer their seventh loss for the season. Worse still, perhaps, was them now being below lesser town neighbours Wigan Highfield in the table. This was the first time that had ever happened, this deep into a season anyway.
