Wigan in third place travelled to play the unbeaten
league leaders Widnes at Naughton Park. The contest was "a great struggle",
spoiled by the pitch being heavy in the soggy wet conditions. Controlling
possession was "half the battle" said one newspaper and the match proved to
be decided by a solitary 25 yard penalty goal by Ted Ward in the first half.
So with the slender victory, Wigan had ended the run of the last unbeaten
side. Second placed Warrington also lost (5-4 at Barrow) so it was a good
day all round for Wigan who remained third.
