Wigan made it four Lancashire Cup Final successes in a row with this hard fought victory over Salford at Knowsley Road. It was a harsh call perhaps that hero of the semi final Sean Tyrer were left out but Steve Hampson, Andy Gregory, Kevin Iro and Joe Lydon all returned to the starting line up. No score had occurred when Steve Hampson was sin binned in the 23rd Minute for a high tackle on Paul Shaw. Peter Brown kicked the resulting penalty for 2-0 and with Hampo still off the field, Mick Worrall made it 3-0 with a drop goal on the half hour. Wigan though soon hit back when he returned after Peter Williams fumbled a Shaun Edwards bomb and Kevin Iro scored. He also converted and kicked a penalty to put Wigan 8-3 ahead at the half.

Salford though started the second half well and would eventually re-take the lead. Worrall sent Tex Evans over an unconverted try in the 50th Minute before a penalty from Brown made it 9-8. That lead held until Wigan found three tries in five minutes to devastate Salford. Adrian Shelford, Kevin Iro (again) and Dean Bell all scored and between 67 and 72 minutes Salford had gone from 9-8 up to 22-9 though. Fair play they did still rally to claim two late scores but neither being converted meant it wasn't enough. Wigan had won 22-17 but it wasn't the best of final performances.
