Summary:l

After needing a replay to see off Leeds, the cup draw was unkind to Wigan again, sending them away to cup holders Wakefield. Wigan took the lead with a 11th Minute penalty goal from Fred Griffiths and they would surely have never imagined that one goal would prove enough to win the tie with no further scoring in the remaining 69 minutes.
