Wigan book Super League grand final spot

More NRL News

Wigan are through to a fourth successive Super League grand final after coming through 28-18 in an epic semi-final against Hull FC.

Hull produced an extraordinary climax to a memorable fightback, coming from 14-0 down to lead 18-16 with Steve Michaels' try sensationally awarded at one end after Wigan - and referee Robert Hicks - thought they had scored at the other.

The remarkable try counted for little in the end, however, as the Warriors stormed back to score two tries in the last 10 minutes and clinch a victory that sets up a Old Trafford clash with Warrington next Saturday.

That is a repeat of the 2013 final, which Wigan won 30-16.

Defeat signalled the end of his career for Hull's long-serving centre Kirk Yeaman but Wigan duo Dan Sarginson and rugby-bound Josh Charnley will get the chance to play their final matches for the club on the big stage.
