Wigan finally scored some points but still fell to defeat
against second in the table Salford. Wigan were 8-0 down before reducing the
lead to 8-2 with a penalty goal. By half time it was 13-5 to Salford and
although they failed to score after the interval, Wigan could only reduce
that lead by three points after Jack Brown's try.
