A repeat of not only the Regal Trophy Final earlier in the season at the same venue, but also the previous years Semi Final when Wigan won 71-10. Bradford though had beaten Wigan 23-16 at Odsal ten days prior in the league and proved to be far more competitive this time round at Elland Road. The game was scoreless all the way to the 45th Minute when Steve Hampson went over to break the long deadlock. Frano Botica converted before kicking a penalty for 8-0 and Shaun Edwards kicked a drop goal for a 9-0 lead. Bradford though hit back with a great try from Roger Simpson. Receiving a pass from David Heron he managed to out-wit both Hampson and Joe Lydon to score and with David Hobbs converting, it was a 9-6 score. That score held until the 77th Minute when Andrew Farrar's try sealed the game and sent Wigan to Wembley for the sixth year in a row. Prospects of what the press were billing as "the dream final" against Leeds had ended two weeks prior though when they lost heavily to Widnes in their semi final.
