Summary:l

Now out of the Challenge Cup, Wigan had plenty of work to do if they were to make the top four. This match was played in foggy conditions up in Barrow and Wigan started on fire, getting 7-0 up very early in the contest. George Bennett's try was added to with two goals from Jim Sullivan. But tries from Cumberbatch and Rawlings, both unconverted, got Barrow back to 7-6 before half time. The Second Half was very tense with the light becoming "extremely bad" but Sullivan found a penalty goal to tick Wigan over to a 9-6 lead and that proved enough for victory.
