Summary:l

In this 3rd v 6th battle at Central Park, Wigan's winning streak was checked with a "sensational win" for Swinton. Wigan led 8-5 going into the closing stages when Swinton crossed for a controversial try. Swinton hoofed the ball down field and Worsley touched it down. No panic from Wigan because he looked miles offside but the referee determined that the kick had touched a Wigan player, thus putting him onside. Wigan were not happy but the try stood and the conversion was made to win the match for Swinton.
