Summary:l

"Vile conditions" for this Easter Saturday clash at Central Park but it was a big win for Wigan that sealed their "Top 4" position after Leeds lost 6-0 away at Huddersfield. A waterlogged pitch forced a postponement at St Helens and a Thunderstorm caused an early abandonment at Bradford, which summed up the days weather.
