Summary:l

Hull KR hadn't lost in the season so far, so a tough test for Wigan away at Craven Park. Only a Gary Stephens drop goal separate the sides at half time but late in the game Rovers looked like winning with a 5-4 lead. That was until Wigan substitute David Wood nailed a 40 metre penalty goal near the end to snatch a Wigan 6-5 victory.

Half Time:l Hull KR 0 Wigan 1
