This was the only trophy that had alluded John Monie who was now in his fourth season at Wigan. Saints had started the season well and had a 100% record coming into the final with Wigan having lost just once by a point away at Hull. Great Britain coach Malcolm Reilly was fuming at the scheduling of this final with it being played a week before they faced Australia in the World Cup Final at Wembley. It wasn't known at the time but this would prove to be the last ever Lancashire Cup Final and it begun with Frano Botica drop goaling Wigan ahead 1-0 in the 12th minute and no one could of imagined how important that would prove 68 minutes later. He added two penalties later in the half for a 5-0 half time lead. Wigan had Shaun Edwards sin binned just before half time and in the second half two penalties from Bernard Dwyer brought that lead back down to 5-4, but Wigan hung on for the success despite Dean Bell and Sonny Nickle being sin binned with a minute to go.

Half Time: 

St Helens 0 Wigan 5
