A tough spell of frost saw this return Challenge Cup First Round Leg delayed by almost three weeks. Wigan held a healthy thirteen point lead from the first tie and that proved valuable because this match went ahead despite conditions still being awful. Snow meant the match wasn't much of a spectacle but Wigan scored three great ties. Once it became clear that Featherstone had little chance of overhauling the deficit, the referee abandoned the match after 71 minutes due to the poor conditions. The result would stand.

Note:l This Match had previously been postponed on both Saturday 1st March (3pm) and Saturday 8th March (3pm) due to Snow
