Summary:l

Wigan had gone straight out of the Premiership trophy in three of the last four seasons since they had won the competition for the only time in 1987. Normally Widnes would have been too good to be meeting Wigan in the First Round but they had fallen away from title chasing grace without Martin Offiah to finish 8th in this season. Wigan ran away with the victory second half but injury to Andy Gregory just six days before Wembley tarnished the result.
