With their now being 33 professional teams, a preliminary round was added in
the previous season for the Challenge Cup. Only one preliminary round
match was played, and it was Wigan and Cardiff who drew the short straw in
this season. It wasn't ideal for Wigan who having played in the John Player
Final the weekend before were now three games behind most of their title
rivals. Wigan got the job done against mid table second division Cardiff but
the loss of Graeme West with a broken jaw was a big blow.
