Summary:l

New coach John Dorahy achieved something in this win over Leeds that John Monie had never achieved. In all four title success under Monie, Wigan had never won all of their opening three matches. Leeds though would be tough opponents with them having won both their opening games as well. A Simon Irving penalty put them 2-0 up but Wigan responded with a try by Jason Robinson in the 9th Minute, Frano Botica converting for 6-2. Penalties bumped that score up to 8-4 before a 22nd Minute try from Barrie-Jon Mather made it 14-4. Leeds hit back with their first try on 28 minutes with Ellery Hanley being sent under the posts by Jimmy Lowes, easy conversion making it 14-10. But Wigan pounced before half time with a second try for Jason Robinson putting them 20-10 up at the break.

Leeds kicked a penalty for 20-12 in the first quarter second half but the first try of that period only came after 22 hard fought minutes. Shaun Edwards went on a run from 40 metres out and his footwork left Full Back Alan Tait flat footed as he went over near the posts. Easy conversion made it 26-12. It proved to be a double whammy because on the re-start, Nigel Wright went over for his first Wigan try and within three minutes the score had gone form 20-12 to 32-12. Leeds' only response to that was an injury time try by Ellery Hanley but the most bizarre moment of the night came after the hooter. Michael Aspel ran on the field to present Dean Bell with the famous red book for ITV's "This is Your Life" programme. His episode ended up being televised the following June.
