Wigan looked like they'd made the perfect start when
A.Middleton and William Straughan had combined to get Tom Nicholson over in
the corner but the try was pulled back for a forward pass. They did take the
lead though with a Tom Owen penalty goal soon after. That score carried
until half time but Widnes were far stronger after the break. They equalised
with a drop goal before a try put them 7-2 ahead. They later added a second
try to complete the turnaround.
