Summary: 

Wigan were hoping to win their eight Challenge Cup Final in a row whilst Leeds were looking to do better than their ten point loss to Wigan in the previous years final. They started well with a penalty goal from Graham Holroyd putting them 2-0 up but, in the 18th Minute, Jason Robinson spun out of a tackle to race in from 40 metres. That was 6-2 and seven minutes later Henry Paul this time spun through weak tackling to make it 10-2 with the conversion missing. In the ten minutes up to half time, Holroyd kicked a penalty to reduce that lead to 10-4 but Botica responded with one of his home for 12-4 at the break.

Five minutes after the interval, Wigan went further ahead with Robinson claiming his second with a 40 metre dash up the middle from dummy half. Then when Martin Hall scored on 52 minutes it was looking easy for Wigan with them now leading 24-4. Inga Tuigamala's try on 65 minutes was the final nail in the coffin for a disappointing Leeds side but they would claim the games last try from Jimmy Lowes with two minutes to go. Such was Wigan's dominance of the competition in recent years, that mere consolation was met with cheers and applause from the Leeds supporters and a couple of players as well. Wigan though took the ultimate joy with this completing their fifth league and cup double in a row.
