Summary:l

After the exhaustive end to the season for Wigan, the prospect of the end of season Premiership Trophy wasn't high on the agenda, especially with a Wembley cup final just six days away. With that in mind Wigan rested eight of their Wembley line up including Steve Hampson, Dean Bell, Frano Botica, Shaun Edwards, Andy Gregory, Ian Lucas, Martin Dermott and Ellery Hanley. Considering the changes, Wigan put up a great effort here but Featherstone celebrating like they'd won a major trophy at the final whistle was a bit much considering Wigan's recent onslaught to win the league.
