2017 World Champions
A sea of blue and red fills Old Trafford in anticipation of the Betfred Super League Grand Final 2018.
Shaun Wane leads Wigan out for the final time
Warrington strike first thanks to ex-Wiganer Josh Charnley. The winger grabs a try for the Wire in the 12th minute.
In only his fifth game of the season, (after being side-lined for two years with injuries), Wigan winger Dom Manfredi brings the Warriors level with a try in the corner thanks to brilliant work from Oliver Gildart. Grand Final score level at 4-4 after 26 minutes.
A brilliantly timed low kick from Wigan’s George Williams from 25 metres out cuts through the Warrington line to link with a Tom Davies run to double the Warriors tally. Wigan lead 8-4 after 30 minutes.
Davies shows his worth in defence as he brilliantly denies Charnley a try by dragging him into touch. Half time score, Wigan 8-4 Warrington.
The second half begins similar to the first, with good spells of pressure from Warrington. However, a resolute Wigan defence halts the Wire attack from adding to their score.
Following a hefty collision with Warrington winger Tom Lineham, Dom Manfredi is removed from the field of play for a head assessment.
Wigan forward Ben Flower wrestles his way through a couple of Warrington players, only to be halted just short of the try line.
Dom Manfredi completes his fairy tale return for the Warriors, appearing back on the field with a bandaged head to score his second try of the game in the 77th minute.
WIGAN WIN! One half of Old Trafford erupts as the full time hooter sounds. Players, coaches and staff flood onto the pitch to celebrate.
