WiganlGoals from Mark:l
Widnes took a 4-0 lead with a drop goal from Drummond and
that proved enough with Wigan's only response coming from a Duncan Lamonby
try. Rules in this early denoted a drop goal worth more points than a try,
so Widnes won.
Try - 3 points. Conversion - 2 points. Drop Goal - 4 points. Penalty - 3
points. Goal from Mark - 4 points.
