Summary:l

Widnes may have been champions but they hadn't beaten Wigan in a competitive game for almost three years, so they would have enjoyed this visit to Central Park. They led 12-6 at the break after tries from Kurt Sorensen and Alan Tait either side of Tony Iro's response for Wigan. Although Sean Tyrer kicked a goal to reduce that to 12-8 but Martin Offiah increased their lead and Darren Wright finished Wigan off with eight minutes to go.
