Summary:l

On the Friday before this fixture, Wigan announced the signing of Martin Offiah for a fee of £440,000. He had not played all season during a contract dispute at Widnes, but it was Wigan who stumped up the most cash to sign him ahead of bids from Leeds and Hull. Despite the lack of match practise, Offiah was thrown straight into the Wigan line up for his debut but was soon spelled on the half hour for David Myers, the player who lost his place to him. Wigan had taken the lead by then though after good work from Andy Gregory and Gene Miles got Shaun Edwards over in the 20th Minute. Three minutes later, Denis Betts scored and Wakefield's only response was a penalty goal by Conway on 35 minutes. Tries from Myers and Joe Lydon saw Wigan win 20-2. It had been a poor day weather wise though, so much so that Warrington's match down the road against Leeds was postponed. Wigan took advantage of that to go top of the table.
