Summary: 

An absolute annihilation by Wigan against Bradford in this Challenge Cup Semi Final at Burnden Park. Amazingly it began with a drop goal in the 3rd Minute from Andy Gregory to make it 1-0 but by half time tries had flown in by Gene Miles, Ian Lucas, Miles again, Martin Offiah, Joe Lydon and Shaun Edwards had Wigan 35-0 up. Though Bradford scored twice second half, Wigan never let up with, as BBC commentator Ray French eloquently put it "Martin Offiah gets five tries (in the end) and doesn't even get the man of the match".
