All the Leeds headlines were about them avenging their Wembley defeat in this Premiership Final at Old Trafford but instead they suffered the humiliation of a record defeat in a final. Wigan produced a merciless display with tries from Kris Radlinski (2), Kelvin Skerrett, Gary Connolly (2) and Shaun Edwards helping Wigan build up a 36-6 lead by half time with only Richie Eyres responding for Leeds to make it 6-6 at one point. During the second half both Radlinski and Connolly completed hat-tricks, becoming the first men to score three in Premiership Finals, whilst Denis Betts, Henry Paul, Martin Hall and Simon Haughton all crossed. Craig Innes had provided some rest bite for Leeds but salt was certainly rubbed into their wounds when Andy Farrell kicked a drop goal for with the score at 64-12. So Wigan had completed the "Grand Slam" of winning the League, Challenge Cup, Regal Trophy and Premiership Trophy but few would have betted on them doing so with 12 tries and fewer still would have bet on Martin Offiah not getting on the score sheet with 69 points scored!

Half Time: 

Wigan 36 Leeds 6
