Tries: Darren Willis
Goals: (None)


Wigan won the World Club Challenge for the second time against a Penrith side that "had seemed at pains to get their excuses in first" before the game but still competed well. Penrith certainly wouldn't have been impressed with French referee Alain Sablayrolles who penalised them nine times in the first 15 minutes, allowing Frano Botica to dispatch four penalty goals for an 8-0 lead after just 12 minutes. Penrith did recover to claim the games first try from Darren Willis in the 18th Minute but a 27th Minute try from Sam Panapa put Wigan 14-4 up by half time. No further scoring occurred until the 70th Minute when Botica kicked a fifth penalty for 16-4 and the night was topped off for Wigan with a try from David Myers three minutes from time and a late drop goal from Joe Lydon. One newspaper did suggest the final score "rather flattered" Wigan and that "the fixture once again had been amply justified".
