Summary:l

Two weeks earlier Wigan had took advantage of Swinton's County Championship Call Ups but this time they were hampered by their own call ups. "Glamorganshire & Monmouthshire" were taking part in the County Championship with Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumberland during this era and Johnny Ring, Jim Sullivan and Frank Stephens had been called up for their clash with Lancashire in Pontypridd. In fact Glamorganshire & Monmouthshire beat Lancashire 12-8 to deny them a chance of winning the trophy. Wigan went down to their 8th defeat of the season at Broughton to stay marooned in mid table.
