Wigan welcomed Leeds to Central Park for this cup tie but were unable to called upon Ellery Hanley, who had been suspended by the club for disciplinary reasons. Shaun Wane, Dean Bell and Henderson Gill were also absent and it looked a big ask for Wigan when tries from Garry Schofield and Paul Medley took them into a 10-0 lead with David Stephenson, a Wigan player until Christmas, adding a conversion. The game turned perhaps when Medley left the field injured to be replaced by Mark Brooke-Cowden in the 32nd Minute because in the ten minutes up to half time Wigan claimed three tries. First Shaun Edwards and Ged Byrne to get Andy Goodway over before a charge down of a Jackson kick by Ian Potter allowed Brian Case to score for 12-10. Then right on half time, Kevin Iro sent his brother Tony over and although the conversion missed, Wigan would have been delighted with a 16-10 lead.

Wigan's rally continued right after the interval with three tries putting them in total command. Richard Russell juggled the ball to a touch down, then Steve Hampson also got a try after Edwards had been playing soccer in midfield before Tony Iro's second try made it 30-10. All that was within eight second half minutes, so Wigan still had 28 minutes to see out the win but Leeds only return was a Peter Tunks try with eight minutes to go, far too late for a comeback.
