Leeds had played twice since Wigan's last league game and had suffered another blow to their title hopes with a 31-20 home defeat to St Helens. They had recovered to beat Bradford 30-10 at Odsal but Wigan still held a three point lead at the top with now two games in hand. That meant that this midweek slip at Halifax was nothing more than a minor inconvenience to Wigan. Despite Shaun Edwards being sin binned, Wigan took the lead with a Gary Connolly try for 4-0 but by half time Halifax, led by impressive young hooker Paul Rowley, were dominating Wigan with a try from John Bentley being added to by four goals from John Schuster for 12-4. Early in the second half, that lead became 18-4 with Mark Preston scoring against his old club and Schuster converting. Wigan looked lacklustre all match and the two tries from Edwards, both converted by Botica, came far too late.

Half Time: 

Halifax 12 Wigan 4
