Wigan's cup defence came to an end in a tight cup tie away at Barrow. No sign of that coming first half when Wigan had built up a 7-0 lead. It probably should have been double that though and whilst Barrow still had hope, they took advantage in the second half with the light wind and sun at their backs. A "shocking error" by Johnny Alty was eventually converted into a try by Lewthwaite for 7-3 and later he added a second try for 7-6. Conversion failures still had Wigan ahead as the game progressed into the final quarter but with six minutes to go, Barrow got a penalty shot to take the lead. Fourty yards out and fifteen from touch, this was no easy kick but it Horne managed to get it to put Barrow 8-7 ahead. He then frustrated Wigan in the final moments with some deep kicks that kept them well away from the try line. The home supporter were in raptures as the final whistle was sounded by referee Mr Coates of Pudsey.
