Warrington had returned to the top of the table with victory over Widnes on December 27th, so this was a big game with Wigan being in second place. Wigan got off to the perfect start with a Martin Offiah try after just 5 minutes but the conversion was missed by Frano Botica. He later added a penalty goal for a 6-0 half time lead. In the second half a Jonathan Davies penalty reduced the lead to 6-2. Later a good passing move between John Thursfield, Greg Mackey, Mike Gregory and Lee Penny got Mark Forster over in the right corner but Davies couldn't convert, so the scores were tied at 6-6. It was a tight finish and that scored looked to be how it would finish until Warrington chucked away a vital league point in the fourth minute of stoppage time. They had possession but Mike Gregory knocked on. Phil Clarke pounced on the loose ball only for Paul Cullen to tackle him knees first. Penalty was awarded and then marched ten metres further forward by referee Russell Smith after dissent from Davies. Despite having a rare dodgy day with the boot, Botica kicked the penalty and Wigan had won to go back top of the table.
