For the second year in a row Saints were wounded in the "Top 4" play off hopes with failure to beat Wigan in a crunch match. They left themselves too much to do after Wigan had a healthy first half lead. Ken Gee opened the scoring early with a penalty before Jimmy Stott soon responded with one for Saints. Then Billy Blan found the first try of the game that made it 7-2 after Gee converted but a second penalty from Stott reduced that to 7-4. It was after that, that Wigan had a white spot spell towards the break. Tries from Brian Nordgren and Ces Mountford made it 13-4. Neither of those tries were converted but a penalty from Gee made it 15-4 early in the second half before a try from Joe Ball, converted by Stott, brought that back to 15-9. The match was now a tense affair and no further score game until Steve Llewellyn beat Jackie Cunliffe in the air to collect a kick from Stott and make it 15-12. Conversion was missed though and Wigan managed to hang on in the end with Gee adding a late penalty.
