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.

Half Time:  Wigan 18 Bradford 6
