Leeds Away was a tough John Player Trophy First Round Draw for Wigan, highlighted by the fact BBC picked the match for Grandstand. The viewers got to witness a great comeback by Wigan who found themselves 20-10 down with 25 minutes to go. Green Vigo led the way with a superb hat-trick. Even Leeds fans applauded his efforts as he celebrated by blowing kisses to the crowd and beating his chest!
