Johnny Thomas 1

Summary:l

Wigan were pretty comfortable in second place but a further victory over third placed Broughton cemented their strength further. Billy Curran made his debut on the right wing and scored twice whilst Robert Curwen replaced Lance Todd on the left wing and also scored a try. Broughton avoided being pointless with a late penalty goal but already being 11-0 down that penalty was a bit pointless in itself.
