Wigan RL History - Record Challenge Cup Unbeaten Run

Between 30th January 1988 and 11th February 1996 Wigan embarked on its famous 43 match unbeaten run in the Challenge Cup, which saw them lift the Challenge Cup for 8 seasons in a row.

The run began with a slender 2-0 home win over Bradford and ended with a shock defeat to First Division Salford at the Willows.

There were some close shaves along the way most notably the 6-4 Round 1 win at Hull KR in 1990, the 1993 19-18 Quarter Final win at Halifax and the 1994 22-21 5th Round win at Hull when Wigan fought back from 21-2 down.

Wigan won 36 matches in a row until St Helens came closest to beating us as they forced a replay in the 37th match of the 43 match run.

Shaun Edwards was the only player to appear in every match.

Here is a list of those matches
