Wigan had taken a 7-0 lead in as many minutes with a try from Ken Bird being added to with one from Jackie Cunliffe. But Saints clawed back with two penalties from Austin Rhodes before tries by Nat Silcock and Vince Karalius put them 14-7 up at half time. Wigan rallied after the break but couldn't find a try and their spirit was broken when Glyn Moses scored a try. One for Frank Carlton soon followed and John Dickinson later was awarded a penalty try that completed quite a rout in the end.
