With just a week between the original tie and the final,
this BBC Floodlit Trophy Replay needed to be re-arranged quickly and thus
this game just two days after the original tie. In the first game. Wigan had been two
minutes from victory before a late penalty caused a replay. In this replay
at Knowsley Road, that wasn't televised, it was equally as tight in the first
half. Like the original tie, the two tries had been scored before the break
but Wigan edged through to the final by winning the second half 6-2. Wigan
did well to get victory with Colin Tyrer absent and Colin Clarke having been
replaced injured after just 26 minutes.
