A new contract with Sky saw them now televise two matches a week and become the exclusive broadcaster of league games  now that Granada's three year deal had ended. With Sky now having rights to Premier League Football on Sunday Afternoons they decided to move their Live Match of the week to a new Friday Night slot whilst the second match they would cover would be one of the Sunday 3pm Kick Offs but shown delayed later that evening.

This was Sky's first Friday game with Champions Wigan travelling to Second Division Champions Sheffield Eagles. Earlier in the day Wigan had sold Andy Goodway to Leeds whilst Andrew Farrar had been signed to replace Gene Miles, but didn't play here. Sheffield had started well but didn't score a try and Wigan responded three tries in a seven minute spell with two from Shaun Edwards and one from Martin Offiah for 18-0. Sheffield hit back with a try from Anthony Farrell but in stoppage time Joe Lydon kicked a penalty and converted a try for Denis Betts which had Wigan in total command at 26-6 half time. Wigan kicked on to add twenty points after the interval with plenty of praise for Martin Crompton at Scrum Half who was replacing the now departed Andy Gregory.

Half Time: 

Sheffield 6 Wigan 26
