Bradford Bulls 14 Tries: Godwin, Feather Goals: Deacon 3
Played in rain and windy conditions Bradford opened up an 8-0 lead with a try from Wayne Godwin and two goals from Paul Deacon. But Wigan hit back straight way with two quick scores from George Carmont and Darrell Goulding to take a 12-8 lead at the break.
In the early stages of the second half Pat Richards leaped above Paul Sykes to extend the hosts lead, after a cross-field kick from Trent Barrett. Substitute Chris Feather close range try gave the Bulls some hope but a mistake from Michael Platt let in Joel Tomkins to wrap up the win for Wigan.
