Summary:l

Easter was going to be massive in terms of the "Top 4" play off race but this was an abysmal start from Wigan in this 3rd v 4th encounter against Saints. Wigan were thoroughly outclassed on their own ground in front of 23,000 spectators. Salford jumped above Wigan into the top 4 with a 18-5 win away at Barrow. Swinton also beat Oldham so it was a bad day all round for Wigan.
