This week on Wigan TV, in partnership with Principal Partner Prestone, we are looking back at some of the classic games when Wigan have come from behind to win in dramatic style.

Ranging from 1994 all the way up until 2018, there will be 12 classic late wins uploaded to Wigan TV this week.

Subscribers will be able to watch highlights and the full games with two uploads guaranteed each day from 2pm on the homepage.

We kick the week off with games from 1994 and 1995. The first is from February 1994 when Wigan went to Hull in the Challenge Cup. The visitors went into the game having won 32 consecutive Challenge Cup games and the battle was on to make it 33 as they trailed 21-2…

The second classic game is from December 1995 when Wigan travelled to Widnes in the Regal Trophy. From 16-4 with ten minutes left to play, the away side forced extra time and went on to win…
