We looked out of it energy wise after 55 minutes and i really thought Warrington would snatch it near the end but somehow we kept turning up with scrappy tackles and scrambling defence to shut them down and then we had the conviction to finish them off in a very Grand Final way at the end with that lovely switch of play. Wane may not be the most entertaining coach but he has the ability to make his players fight to the death and never ever give up.

Wigan win by never ever accepting defeat , this comes from SW .

All this nonsense about his limitations as a coach is embarrassing .

Rugby League is a very simple game to coach , instilling desire , the ability to run through brick walls , play through the pain barrier etc.. however takes special management qualities , Wane has these in abundance .

Well done Wigan and SW , deserving champions :CLAP:

Agreed, not only did Manfredi get those 2 try's he also put in that huge try saving tackle on Lineham and defused a couple of dangerous cross field kicks as well as some great line clearing runs. Ratchford was good for Wire but i dont think he deserved MOM.

Did it the hard way against a side that didn't choke :CLAP:

We want it back, mind... :)

How did you win that?

Well you were playing Warrington and a HB combination of Brown and Roberts.

Courageous and disciplined defence, thats how. We gave them far too many chances but what a defensive machine this team has been over the last couple of months.

We won because we don’t celebrate knock ons when we’re losing like we’ve just won the final. We actually know how to go on and win finals.

Some say Hill and co are still there now on the pitch high fiving each other.
