This was Wigan's first appearance in the end of season Premiership Trophy Final and it was also the first one to be played at Old Trafford in a double header with the Second Division Premiership Final, being held for the first time in this season. Warrington had been the only side to beat Wigan during the league campaign, winning both home and away but in a hard slog, Wigan would gain revenge with Joe Lydon's 35th Minute long dribble down the field being the crucial moment.
