Wigan had signed Joe Lydon on January 20th for £100,000
but it was only now that he was fit enough to make his debut, which came
just 24 hours after he, Ian Potter and Shaun Edwards had played in Great
Britain's 24-10 victory over France, also at Central Park. Wigan saw off
Hull with relative ease after Andy Goodway opened the scoring inside the
first minute. South African Ray Mordt also scored his first tries for the
Wigan 18 Hull 0
Stephen Haigh (Wakefield)
Match was previously Postponed on both Sunday 8th December
due to John Player Cup Ties and Sunday 29th December 1986 Due to Frozen
Pitch. The second postponed was actually meant to be the debut of Wigan's New Undersoil heating system,
but it failed!
