Both sides had subsequently fined £500 (suspended for 12
months) after a mass brawl in the cup tie between the sides the previous
Sunday and Featherstone seemingly did not learn their lesson on this quick
return for a league match. They ended up playing out the first half with 11
men after Brendan Tuuta was sin binned and two minutes later Andy Wilson
also received a yellow card. Wigan though didn't really push home that
advantage and at half time both sides had scored one try each, Gary H. Price
for Fev and Sam Panapa for Wigan, but Frano Botica had kicked four goals
from four whilst Martin Pearson failed with three attempts. Featherstone did
get back to 12-10 quickly after half time following a Terry Manning try but
those missed goals earlier proved costly because Wigan would kick on to win
comfortably in the final 20 minutes. Botica increased the lead first with a
penalty for 14-10 and tries late from Barrie-Jon Mather, Neil Cowie and
Martin Offiah completed the win that moved Wigan up to second in the table.
Wigan 12 Featherstone 4

Match had previously been postponed on Sunday
23rd January 1994 (3:00pm) due to Wigan playing in Regal Trophy Final
