Summary:l

Two consecutive defeats had put pressure on Wigan over Easter to win games to maintain their "Top 4" play off position so the return of Jim Sullivan was most welcome. Whilst winning well against St Helens in front of 15,000 at Central Park, but nothing was decided here with all of the top 8 winning on this Good Friday
