Goals: (None)


BBC Grandstand were attendance to see if Oldham could repeat the Challenge Cup victory over Wigan of two years earlier, but it wasn't the greatest spectacle on a snow covered pitch at Watersheddings. Only one try was scored in the first half when a chip over the top from Andy Gregory was won and hacked on by him for Shaun Edwards to finish. Joe Lydon converted for 6-0. In the second half, Paul Lord scored in the right corner to bring the score back to 6-4 but Oldham's chances were pretty limited throughout. They had been hanging on a while before Kevin Iro eventually scored. Conversion was missed, so Oldham still had a chance to force a replay at 10-4, but Lydon kicked a late penalty to get Wigan through.

Half Time: 

Oldham 0 Wigan 6



Referee:  Dave Carter (Widnes)
