This was an exciting Lancashire Cup Tie in which Wigan had to fight back to earn progression. Saints took the lead with a penalty goal from Jimmy Stott before Albert Doyle won a race to a kick with Martin Ryan to score a try that made it 7-0 after Stott converted. Wigan's only first half response came just before half time with a penalty goal from Ted Ward making it 7-2 at the break. Wigan got a gift try to further bring that deficit when a poor pass from Walter Norris towards Jim Myers for Saints was intercepted and returned for a try by Ernie Ashcroft. That should have been 7-7 with a simple conversion for Ward but he somehow managed to miss it, so the Saints still held a slender 7-5 advantage. That was looking a costly miss but Wigan found a winning try from Gordon Ratcliffe although Saints complained heavily that Jimmy Stott had been obstructed. Despite the missed conversion the 8-7 lead proved to be enough.
