Summary:l

Prior to the Easter Weekend, this would be the first of four matches within six days for Wigan and after losing to Liverpool on the Saturday, they had work to do in the top four race. It was a tight first half with Recs taking the lead after 24 minutes but two unconverted tries each left it 6-6 at the break. But Wigan scored four tries after half time and were not punished for poor kicking, Sullivan amazingly only kicking one conversion out of six.
