Summary:l

Wigan got their best win of the season over Rochdale Hornets at Prescott Street in this match. They were at it right from the off with combination between John Timoney and Frank Dixon seeing the latter claim the try. Timoney got injured in that move and retired injured soon after, but being down to 14 men didn't halt Wigan's charge. Dixon added a drop goal first for 5-0 before further tries from R.Robinson and Billy Rhoden helping Wigan to an 11-0 half time lead. John Winstanley and Percy Jago added second half tries to complete a rout.
