Although they had played a game more, Leeds had used their Preliminary Round cup exit to Bradford to continue playing games. This had allowed them to draw level joint top of the table with Wigan, both sides being on 30 points ahead of this first of two league meetings between now and the end of the season. Headingley was absolutely packed in anticipation but it was Wigan who showed their class for the majority of the game. Both sides exchanged penalty goals before a brilliant one-two between Shaun Edwards and Andy Gregory created the space for Andy Goodway to break and send Andy Platt over. Lydon converting for an 8-2 lead. A further penalty from Lydon and a long, and extremely high, 40 metre drop goal from Steve Hampson made it 11-2 by the break.

Into the second half and Wigan swapped Gregory with youngster Bobbie Goulding and he made a quick impact to score a try and kick the goal for 17-2. Then by the 55th Minute it was 21-2 with Mark Preston returning an intercept 80 metres to score and it was looking like Wigan would cruise to victory at 21-2. Leeds though would fight back with tries from first David Creasser and then Vince Fawcett making it 21-14 with still eight minutes to go. It proved to be too little, too late from Leeds, Wigan had got the vital victory.
