I was there. I had to Google to check but I was correct in thinking that Wigan were in the second division that season.

Me too, will always remember Tommy Martyn catching the kick off and scoring!

What I can remember, and I think that it was as a result of that try, was my watch strap breaking whilst celebrating and then chipping a tooth whilst trying to bend the clasp back (with my teeth).

I hope your watch strap breaks at 6.10 pm on Saturday, it'll be a good omen, but find another way of reattaching!

I was only 4 the last time we beat them in a final.
I remember the circumstances and venues for a lot of the defeats but not too sure on the years
Burnden park (when part of the ground a
Was a supermarket) i remember being in the pub pre match with my dad and the rumour pre match was that Andy Gregory was not playing because he had just signed for wigan must have been around 1986.
Prem final at OT in 1988 and i am sure there was a "fastest player in league" sprint competition that Foz won unless i am dreaming that
Obviously Wembley 1990
Then a spanking in a regal troph final just after the Reebok had openend in the 1990"s but memory is fading here because i had discovered booze by that point.
Its amazing that i remember things a lot clearer from before the time i could get served in a boozer. I am sure there were others but the years have taken their toll.

Nearly got it right. It was "The British Coal 9s"
It was 1988
It was against "The rest of the world" Warrington played in the final not Wigan

If I recall we also battered them something like 32-nil.

Brian Johnstone in particular and everyone with pace.

The final of the 9s was 24-0. Kept up Tony Barrows record of never losing at central park.

Thanks. Wasn't far off from top of my head... and still a hell of a scoreline for 15 or 20mins e/w.
