The Wigan "team spirit was not to be compared with that of their opponents". That was the newspaper summary of this final at Watersheddings in Oldham. Swinton had a 5-0 lead at Half Time thanks to a try from Cracknell and conversion by Morris. Wigan responded with a Jim Sullivan penalty goal second half but couldn't find a try to get them at least level.
