New Coach Alex Murphy picked new signings Brian Juliff and
Jimmy Fairhurst in this opening match of the 1982/83 season against newly promoted Carlisle. Fairhurst's
contribution proved invaluable, his try off the bench being the difference
in the end with Wigan holding off a second half fightback by Carlisle.
