Andy Gregory was back in dispute with coach Graeme Lowe after being left on the bench in each of Wigan's last three matches. His refusal to sit on the bench saw him dropped again and although Wigan won this cup tie away at Bradford, his class was certainly missed. It was a similar game to the John Player Semi Final earlier in the season. Bradford tried hard but Wigan always had too much class and a sin bin for Fairbank didn't help the Northern hope. Wigan took the lead in the 9th Minute when Shaun Edwards kick rebounded to himself off the posts. Kevin Iro converted for 6-0. Bradford hit back with two penalties from David Hobbs but a Joe Lydon penalty goal had Wigan 7-4 ahead at the break. A Nicky Kiss dart from dummy half increased the lead to 13-4 second half for Wigan and the game was sealed with a try in the 78th Minute try from Ged Byrne, who had only just returned to the field for Dean Bell.
