Summary:l

This BBC 2 Floodlit Trophy Tie away at Hull KR was one of the three ties not picked for Live TV Coverage. The potential viewers missed a tight contest that was only decided late on. Wigan had a 10-7 lead with just 11 minutes to go when a try from Kirkpatrick levelled the scores. A replay was on the cards but Kirkpatrick then score again in the 75th Minute to put Rovers 15-10 up and matters were finally settled when Fox added another score for 20-10 in the final minute. The end score was harsh on Wigan's efforts.
