For the second season in a row, Wigan and St Helens played out a draw in a Floodlit Trophy Semi Final at Central Park. Saints had played a tour match away in France on the weekend prior but still competed well in this game. Saints were leading 7-5 at the break and the only scoring the TV viewers saw on BBC 2 in the second half live coverage was a equalising penalty goal from Colin Tyrer that forced the replay.
