Holders Wigan crashed out of the cup after a superb defensive display from visitors Castleford. The absence of Steve Ella didn't help the cause but it wouldn't have been known at the time that Wigan wouldn't lose another Challenge Cup tie at home for the next 28 years until Castleford again beat Wigan at DW Stadium in June 2014.
