With Wigan sitting second bottom of the table, the arrival of Australian test star Steve Ella couldn't come soon enough. His debut would come in this Lancashire Cup Semi Final first though, and only off the bench. No scoring had occurred for most of the first half but Saints had begun to struggle after losing both Paul Forber and Neil Holding to injury. They finally broke in the 37th Minute when Shaun Wane ran from dummy half to crash over and it proved a double whammy with Shaun Edwards adding another before the half time hooter. A penalty goal from Sean Day reduced the lead to 10-2 but it was long become a case of when Wigan would unleash Ella from the bench and he got his chance replacing Steve Hampson on the hour mark. Wigan were already on their way to the Final by then though with Shaun Edwards adding second try, Greg Dowling scored and Ella himself would top his debut with the last try of the game.
