The scheduling of this Grünhalle Lager Lancashire Cup Final just four days after the World Club Challenge v Manly was far from ideal but Wigan perhaps that told in the first 20 minutes when Warrington had built up a 12-4 lead. The Wires had taken the lead in the 11th Minute when good work from Brian Johnson got Mark Forster over and John Woods converted for 6-0. Wigan responded six minutes later with excellent footwork from Henderson Gill leaving Des Drummond flat footed. That was only 6-4 because the conversion missed and three minutes after that, great passing between Barry Peters, John Woods and Keith Holden saw Mike Gregory finish and Woods conversion made it 12-4. So work to do for Wigan but they would claw back to lead by half time. First on 23 minutes, Andy Gregory sent Andy Goodway through a gap and the support Ellery Hanley finished under the posts. A conversion from David Stephenson and two penalty goals later from Joe Lydon had Wigan leading 14-12 by the break.

Another penalty goal from Lydon made it 16-12 soon after half time but on 51 minutes, Wigan were caught short from a scrum and Forster claimed his second try. Conversion was missed, so the scores were left tied at 16-16 and that score remained for quite a while. It was the 67th Minute that the long stalemate was finally broken and it was a bit of class that did it. Shaun Edwards dummied a couple of times before putting on the gas to make a half break, he then offload perfectly to the supporting Hanley and he went under the sticks for his second try. Easy conversion made it 22-16 and the cup was secured on 74 minutes when Graeme West took Dean Bell's offload to score. Lydon converted for a 28-16 success which completed a superb week for Wigan.
