6,000 fans attended this cup tie at Knowsley Road and Billy Jacques kicked a penalty for a 3-0 Saints lead "amid loud cheering". Later a try for Sam Rimmer made it 6-0 for Saints. The play then got nasty with the referee cautioning for "rough play" but this favoured Saints who increased to 11-0 before half time with Bob Doherty's try being converted by Jacques. Wigan had it all to do second half but couldn't begin to chase down that deficit.

Scoring:l Try - 3 points. Conversion - 2 points. Drop Goal - 4 points. Penalty - 3 points. Goal from Mark - 4 points.
