Saints were desperate to improve from their 27-0 humiliation at Wembley two years earlier but although they did that, Wigan still prevailed to win their fourth Wembley in a row. For 63 minutes it looked like the nil was on again. Wigan had gone 12-0 in as many minutes with tries from David Myers and Frano Botica being added to by two goals from the latter. That score held all the way past half time until Andy Gregory added a drop goal on 47 minutes. Wigan increasingly began to look weary after their horrendous title run in schedule and a try from Alan Hunte reduced that score down to 13-6 after Paul Bishop converted. Sensing Wigan tiring, it was not a bad option to bring the score down with a penalty goal at 13-8, so if Saints found a converted try now, they'd win. Wigan hung on though to complete the double.
