Wigan were lucky to get away with victory in this tie at The Willows with a late try by Salford being controversially disallowed. This game proved to be Lance Todd's 185th and final appearance in Wigan colours. He had requested to go on the transfer list but it would only be the following January 13th that he would be sold to Dewsbury for a hefty fee of 450 (approx value today 45,000).
