Wigan took a break from League Action to take on the touring Kiwi Side and for 50 minutes it looked like they would embarrass them. A try from Shaun Edwards put Wigan ahead before Gene Ngamu's try responded. Daryl Halligan's drop goal had New Zealand 7-6 up but Neil Cowie scored close to half time for a 12-7 half time Wigan lead. Four minutes into the second half Martin Hall scored to put Wigan 18-7 up and the shock victory looked more than on. New Zealand though rallied in the last half hour with tries from Sean Hoppe (2), Jason Mackie and Whetu Taewa completing their comeback.

Half Time: 

Wigan 12 New Zealand 7
