Summary: 

Wigan had a new coach in John Dorahy but although they won it was an unspectacular start. They also had new 140,000 half back Nigel Wright at Stand Off with Frano Botica expected to slot in at full back now Steve Hampson had departed. "Hull shoot themselves in the Sin Bin" was one headline to describe this opening day 1993/94 season fixture. Wigan had amassed ten points during one of two sin bin periods Hull had to endure.
