Leeds had once again returned top of the table with a 36-4 victory over Leeds in Sky's Live Friday Match but Wigan kept up their rate of responding with a hammering over Castleford at Central Park. It was a controversial victory though because Martin Offiah had pulled out of the Great Britain squad for the Sydney World Sevens trip yet played not only played in this game but scored a hat-trick. "Irate callers to GMR's phone in clearly felt Wigan had pulled a fast one" said one newspaper but it was not down to Offiah alone that Wigan got the win. He had scored the two tries in the first half though with Castleford's Andy Hay responding for a 14-6 half time score. Wigan added 32 points in a second half romp.
