On a lovely sunny day at St Helens, Wigan took the lead in this Lancashire Cup Final with a David Stephenson penalty goal but that was quickly responded to by a Brian Carbert penalty for 2-2. The first try would fall to Warrington though with Andy Gregory sending Brian Johnson racing to the try line from a scrum that was 20 metres from their own line. Carbert converted for an 8-2 Warrington lead. Wigan though would respond in the ten minutes before half time with Nicky Kiss scoring from close range and a great try by Steve Ella right on the hooter helping the score to 12-8 in their favour.

After David Stephenson had kicked a penalty goal for 14-8,  the 52nd Minute brought a key moment when Warrington loose forward Alan Rathbone was sent off by referee John Holdsworth for a late hit on his opposite number Ian Potter. Then in a double blow for Warrington they conceded a try from their own attack. Paul Cullen put a kick up which was superbly collected by Colin Whitfield. He should of been tackled right on the try line but broke out of Carbert's tackle and with 60 metres to go he sent Ella racing for his second try. That made it 20-8 and Warrington disintegrated from then on. Ellery Hanley and Shaun Edwards added further tries whilst Warrington finished the game with 11 men after Andy Gregory was sent off 9 minutes from time after stamping on Nick Du Toit.
