Wigan may still be embroiled in a relegation battle but their recent form of four league wins on the bounce, including a victory away at Hull Kingston Rovers, made this an attraction tie to pick for the BBC Grandstand audience. Rovers though prevailed to send Wigan packing out the Wembley hunt at the first fence.
