This was the first Charity Shield contested between the
League Champions and Challenge Cup Winners and Wigan looked determined to
lay down a marker against Rovers who'd won the last two titles. The score
was only 10-2 on the hour but by the 66th Minute Wigan had made that score
28-2 with three tries in quick succession. That took the game beyond Rovers
and ensured Wigan claimed the £4,000 prize money from Okells Brewery.
