Notes[edit]

1 * RUGBYLEAGUEproject[1] shows Broughton Rangers as the home team with the match played at City Road but the official Wigan archives give Wigan as the home team playing at Central Park

2 * Station Road was the home ground of Swinton from 1929 to 1992 and at its peak was one of the finest rugby league grounds in the country and it boasted a capacity of 60,000. The actual record attendance was for the Challenge Cup semi-final on 7 April 1951 when 44,621 watched Wigan beat Warrington 3-2
