Summary:l

On this same weekend the season before, Leigh had become the first side defeat Wigan and although Wigan already lost twice in this year, the loss again to Leigh was still a shock. More so because it occurred this time at Central Park. It was only 2-2 at the break with the sides exchanging penalty goals and that held until the 65th Minute. That's when Leigh found a try to go 7-2 in front and they got another try for 10-2, although unconverted on the second occasion. In the end the late try for Joe Miller was just consolation.
