Even though the final score looks tight at 15-8, the
headline in one newspaper was "Wigan have easy ride" to describe this Regal
Trophy Final at Elland Road. The lead was only taken in the 37th Minute
though when a kick from Shaun Edwards was messed up by Bradford Full Back
Dave Watson and Martin Offiah scooped to send Jason Robinson over. Frano
Botica converted for 6-0 but Bradford still had time to draw two points back
with a David Hobbs penalty goal. Wigan quickly got another try after half
time with Martin Dermott sending Shaun Edwards over. Botica converted for
12-0 and then added a penalty after Steve Hampson had kicked a drop goal.
That made it 15-0 with 10 minutes to go and that proved enough despite a
late try from Bradford's Steve McGowan.
