Wigan were hoping to take advantage of Bradford having no
game on this particular Sunday but they came unstuck at mid table Sheffield.
Wigan had started poorly but yet found the lead with a Gary Connolly try on
20 Minutes. Frano Botica had kicked a drop goal before half time but two
penalties from Mark Aston made it 5-4 to Wigan at the break. In the second
half an error from Jason Robinson allowed Mark Aston to claim a try for a
10-5 lead and Wigan struggled to come back. That proved to be that and now
the title was in Bradford's hands, although Wigan still had to play them
both home and away. A slender 18-14 victory over Salford saw Warrington join
Bradford as joint leaders, though they had played at least two more games.
