On the Tuesday before this game the dispute between coach Graeme Lowe and Ellery Hanley was officially declared over and Hanley returned to the team for this Challenge Cup Semi Final. He hadn't played since mid January but his cause wasn't helped by the fact Wigan won every game in his absence. This Semi Final at Burnden Park was played in muddy conditions but Wigan were far superior in mastering them. Tries from Shaun Edwards and Tony Iro had Wigan 12-0 up by half time and although Salford hit back for 12-4 soon after the interval but Wigan soon recovered to find more tries. Nicky Kiss cheekily hacking on an offload from Hanley got them going before Hanley sent Kevin Iro in for another. Edwards then scored a second before the last of the six Wigan tries went to that very naughty boy Hanley after good work from Gill. Wigan comfortably through to Wembley with a 34-4 success.
