30,000 turned out for this return leg of the opening Lancashire Cup Round at Wilderspool. Wigan held a slender 16-13 first leg advantage but that was reduced early with a penalty from Palin making the aggregate score 16-15. Ted Ward soon responded to bring the lead back to three points at 18-15 before a try from Brian Nordgren made it 21-15. A penalty from Helme before half time kept them within touch though at 21-17. In the second half, Wigan had found another try from Ted Ward but ill-discipline up the other end had let Warrington stay in touch with three more penalty goals (two for Helme, one for Jones) leaving the score at 26-23. Wigan only sealed the tie with Jack Bowen's try in the dying seconds that was converted by Ward to complete a 31-23 aggregate victory.
