Summary:l

Postponements and a Lancashire Cup run meant Wigan had fallen behind in the amount of league games they have played compared to other sides, and that meant they had a lot of work to do after an inconsistent start to the year. They began a busy December in great style though by beating a Wakefield side that were in the top six.
