This was Wigan's last trip to the "Old" Craven Park, a
month before it hosted it's last game, and before the club would move to the
"New" Craven Park ahead of the 1989/90 season. Rovers had fallen from grace
now battling relegation having won the 1984 and 1985 league titles. They put
up a gallant effort against Wigan here but although David Bishop's try made
it 19-18 with six minutes to go, Rovers couldn't find any more points.
Castleford lost for the second game in a row at the top against Hull who
went second in the table.
