The Cherry and Whites had already beaten the union outfit under league rules by 82-6 on May 8, 1996 when they headed to Twickenham.

But Wigan’s triumph at the Middlesex Sevens whet the appetite for the second part of the Clash of the Codes, under union rules in front of more than 40,000 fans at Twickenham.

Craig Murdock scored two stunning tries as Wigan drew the second-half, losing 44-19.
