This looks like a comfortable Wigan win in the end but it was far from it. On a heavy pitch and in pouring rain Wigan, having led 4-1 at half time, were now losing 7-4 and looking resigned to defeat before up stepped substitute John Pendlebury to score. The irony was the bench were just about to substitute him off the field but David Stephenson had sent Shaun Edwards (playing on the wing) on the break away from deep in in his own half. Support play came from Henderson Gill, Mark Cannon, Brian Case and Wayne Elvin before Pendlebury finished off in the right corner. The try had come from nothing, Wigan had looked a beaten side and bogged down on a heavy muddy pitch miles from the try line, but Whitfield's conversion had now put them 10-7 ahead and in these conditions that was a big lead! Mark Cannon added another try late to send Wigan into the Challenge Cup Semi Finals for the first time since they last reached Wembley in 1970!
