Summary:l

On December 9th, Halifax were in third place and pressuring Wigan in top spot of the table. But they suffered a miserable Christmas with defeats on the 16th, 23rd and 25th December being followed up with another here. They also lost to the touring Australasians on Boxing Day so this was a fifth loss in a row for them. It was 5-0 at half time but once Wigan went further ahead, the match became easy for them.
