The 1997 season began in turmoil for Wigan. Failure to win the Challenge Cup in 1996 and top of a well below par average attendance during the first summer season left Wigan's finances with a huge hole. They really needed a good cup run in this season but got the worst draw possible with a visit to double holders and big rivals St Helens. Wigan would have been reasonably happy at 10-10 at the break but even more so when Bobbie Goulding was sent off right on half time for a high shot on Neil Cowie. Instead though the red card inspired 12 men Saints to a brilliant second half performance that knocked Wigan out. The fall out proved to be huge. Graeme West was sacked and both Shaun Edwards and Va'aiga Tuigamala were sold to ensure well needed money entered the Central Park coffers.
