Summary:l

Wigan had won the two previous Lancashire Cups but fell straight out this year's competition with a shock home defeat to Widnes. The visitors to be fair had been in good form at the start of this season but it was still reported that this loss "would take a lot of explaining". Wigan's forward pack was getting the brunt of the blame in the press.
