Saints had humbled Wigan at Central Park in the Lancashire Cup Final two months earlier but now Wigan had their own Aussie superstar to match Mal Meninga in the form of Brett Kenny. Saints were top of the table with Wigan one of the sides chasing them down, so it was a crucial match. Kenny had opened the scoring but Saints hit back with a try from Peter Gorley. By Half Time Saints held a slender 16-14 lead but Wigan were superior after the break with tries from Henderson Gill and Graeme West putting Wigan into a 26-16 lead after two conversions from Whitfield. Saints made Wigan sweat when Meninga scored a try and a conversion from Holding brought the score back to 26-22 with nine minutes to go. However, Ian Potter sealed the win with two minutes to go and Wigan took the Christmas spoils home with them.

Half Time:  St Helens 16 Wigan 14
