A Final remembered most for the injury suffered by Colin Tyrer in the 18th Minute, in which a vicious tackle by Keith Hepworth left him with a severe injury to his jaw and several teeth lost. Amazingly the savage attack did not result in a red card from referee Fred Lindop and the loss of Tyrer proved too much for Wigan, particularly when it came to penalty goal opportunities.

Half Time: 

Castleford 5 Wigan 2
