Summary:l

Fog had postponed Wigan's match the previous weekend, so they had a two week break ahead of this Lancashire Cup Final. They faced near neighbours Leigh who had beaten Wigan at Central Park in early October. This final was tight into the final quarter with two tries from Joe Miller helping Wigan hold a 8-5 lead. It was only once Wigan found a try for 11-5 that Leigh folded and the score harshly ran away from them.
