Summary:l

Wigan scored the only try of the game but lost to Barrow kicking four penalty goals from their player Horne, two of which came off the touchline. However, Warrington losing 13-7 away at Batley saw Wigan cling on to top spot despite a win for Widnes. All this paled into insignificance though with news that Halifax played Hudson Irving had died on the field during their match at home to Dewsbury. He was found laying face down on the grass in the 65th Minute and had died within two minutes of a heart attack. He had been a Halifax player for 12 seasons and was due to have had a benefit match later in the year, which sadly turned into a memorial match.
