Wigan reached their first ever Challenge Cup Final with an unspectacular semi final success over Batley at Fartown in Huddersfield. It was generally reported though that Wigan were lucky to win this tie having played no where near their high standards. It was only 2-0 to Wigan into the final ten minutes but the crowd, which the majority of the 20,000 in attendance were Batley fans, roared as Batley levelled the score. It was a controversial leveller though with the referee having allowed a drop goal (worth two points then) to stand despite it seemingly having gone under the cross bar. But Wigan reached the final with a penalty goal from the halfway line right at the death. Batley later put in an official protest over the awarding of that penalty but the Northern Rugby Union committee dismissed their appeal.
