Summary:l

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.
