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.
