Summary:l

A heavy pitch spoiled this quarter final tie but Wigan did enough to progress to the Semi Finals. It was a bit of a slog though with the opening score, a try for Hector Gee, only coming in the 62nd Minute. Jim Sullivan converted and added a penalty goal on 68 minutes that proved enough for the 7-0 win.
