Summary:l

Early tries from Johnny Ring and Benny Davidson had helped Wigan build a 10-0 lead early in this contest but Salford had got back to 10-8 by Half Time. Then a "doubtful try" put Salford 13-10 up just five minutes into the Second Half and they managed to hold that until the hour mark. But Johnny Ring scored three tries in the last quarter and in converting one of those tries, Jim Sullivan kicked his 1,000 goal in his Wigan career. He later added a penalty goal to round up the Wigan win.
