The turn of the century saw Wigan shock Salford again, just like they had done on
Christmas Day. Tom Owen's drop goal was quickly followed by a Tom White try
for a 5-0 lead but Salford hit back before half time with a penalty goal for
5-2. Tom Nicholson then got a try second half for 8-2 to Wigan and they
defended that out well until late in the game when a Salford try made them
sweat at 8-5. They hung on for their fourth win of the season.
