Summary:l

Easter is always huge towards the play off qualification but Wigan had a massive day here to start the three game Easter weekend. Salford had lost on the Monday and went down 10-5 on this Good Friday away at Barrow. Leeds also lost, massively in fact 31-3 at Castleford, which allowed Wigan to jump up into fourth spot with this win over Saints. It wasn't a great performance though. Only a 2-0 lead at half time and they just did enough to earn a 14-0 win in the end. 15,000 attended.
