Summary:l

Wigan wrapped up the regular season with a comfortable victory over Rochdale at Central Park. Elsewhere, Dewsbury's 32-5 victory over Keighley saw them finish second and condemning Widnes to third. Wigan knew they'd be meeting fourth place in the play offs the following week and at the conclusion of this match it would be Leeds coming to Central Park, where they had won earlier in the season. However, Warrington's final league game away at Rochdale was played on Monday 2nd June and a draw or better would get them into the play offs instead. It was a tight contest but in the end Warrington blew their chance losing 8-7, Leeds taking fourth on points average.
