Castleford had beaten Wigan 33-2 at Headingley in the Regal Trophy Final seven weeks earlier, so this return match in the Challenge Cup Semi Finals, again at Headingley, was set up to be a massive threat to Wigan's Challenge Cup run that had seen them unbeaten since 1987. The press were again sharpening their pens but Wigan ended up dominating as much as Cas did in the previous match. Early tries were a big part with a 6th Minute fifty metre burst from Frano Botica making it 6-0 before he sent Paul Atcheson over to double the lead in the 13th Minute. Then in the 26th Minute, Andy Farrell's half break saw him pass to Gary Connolly who put in a beautifully weighted kick for Martin Offiah to score. Botica's third conversion made it 18-0 and although Wigan wouldn't score any more tries in the remaining 54 minutes, they always controlled the game. In the second half Botica kicked a goal for 20-0 and although Cas had a couple of breaks, a sin bin for Ian Smales would keep them well away from a comeback. They did find a try to Tony Kemp but it had come far too late in the 79th Minute. Wigan then were back at Wembley for the seventh year in a row.
