Wigan Warriors emerged victorious in their Super League grand final against Catalan Dragons. The margin of victory was 10-2 – Liam Marshall scored and three tries from Harry Smith which secured the win for the Warriors.
This win gave Ian Lenagan, Warriors’ chairman, the send-off he deserved, before his departure next month.
This was Wigan’s first grand final triumph since 2018, when they won 12-4 against Warrington.
“To come to this stadium, win a final for my hometown team is brilliant,” said Marshall.
“There aren’t words I can sum up,” added Marshall, 27. “I missed out in 2018 through injury and it’s my seventh year at Wigan now, so to get this chance is unbelievable.”
Unfortunately for Catalans full-back Sam Tompkins, there was no victory celebration after his final game for the team. Tompkins secured three wins with his former team Wigan, but was unable to beat them for his final game.
Jake Wardle, man of the match, shares his plans for the upcoming weeks.
