A big night in the title race saw Wigan travelling to face Featherstone whilst leaders Hull were facing Leeds at Headingley. Wigan's game at Post Office Road kicked off at 6:30pm, an hour before Hull's match would get underway. It wasn't just a crunch match for Wigan though. Featherstone, who had ironically reached the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley to face Hull in the following month, but were also fighting with Barrow to avoid relegation. Only penalty goals were scored first half with Quinn kicking two for Featherstone and Colin Whitfield one for Wigan. Referee Kevin Allatt got booed off the field at half time and returning to the Wigan bench after half time, coach Alex Murphy was struck by an object thrown from the crowd. Murphy shrugged that off but was soon ranting at a try from Hobbs in the 49th Minute that took Featherstone into a 9-2 lead. Wigan knew a loss would give Hull the opportunity to claim the title and with five minutes left that 9-2 score still remained. All look lost for Wigan but they managed to find a try to give them hope with Shaun Wane sending Graeme West over for a try. That was only 9-7 after Whitfield converted but Wigan were soon given an opportunity to level in the last minute. It was 55 yards out but Whitfield, who had missed six kick attempts in the game, went for it and nailed it to level the scores at 9-9. Time still remained in stoppage time for Featherstone to get a penalty but Quinn's effort sailed narrowly wide and the match finished a draw. Wigan would take that the way the game panned out but in truth the dropped point was a big blow. Hull went on to win 20-5 at Leeds which took them two points clear of Wigan and they had a tough to overcome 45 points difference advantage also. Still, whilst there was hope!
