Summary:l

Since Wigan had played the previous Saturday, St Helens had also played on the Monday against Warrington and the day before this game at Batley. So Wigan, having won every match at Central Park during the league campaign, must have really fancied their chances of beating a fatigued Saints side. But amazingly Saints found the legs to earn a massive win for them which had taken them from 5th on the Saturday Night up to 2nd place. The loss meant Wigan dropped out of the "Top 4" play off positions.
