Wigan knew victory in this midweek re-arranged game
against Bradford would see their seventh successive league title added to
the Regal Trophy won on the Saturday. The still would have more
opportunities with defeat but set about sealing it at the first attempt with
Inga Tuigamala opening the scoring after seven minutes. Bradford equalised
with a good chip over the top being re-collected by Simon Knox who sent
Robbie Paul over for 6-6 but Wigan found further tries with Rob Smyth and
Martin Offiah both being sent in from passes by Inga. Bradford cut the lead
down to 18-12 soon after the break with a try but a second try from Rob
Smyth and one for Neil Cowie had Wigan back in control by the hour mark.
Henry Paul scored a fine individual effort to wrap up the win and the title
with two games to spare.
