Having beaten league leaders Saints on Boxing Day, Wigan now had third place Warrington to contend with on New Years Day at Central Park. It was a dress rehearsal for the John Player Trophy Final that would follow in ten days time. Warrington had been the only side, other than Australia, to beat Wigan this season and looked odds on again when taking the lead in the 30th Minute with a try from Paul Cullen that was converted by Paul Bishop for 6-0. David Stephenson had missed an early penalty goal attempt but managed to kick on to bring that lead down to 6-2 before half time. However, he missed another on 47 minutes that proved costly in the end because the only other scoring came from a Joe Lydon penalty later in the half. Warrington were hanging on at the end, but did so to complete a league double over Wigan and also put themselves right in the title race. Consolation for Wigan was that leaders Saints didn't take advantage of this slip up, losing 16-10 at Widnes.
