Shaun Wane ended his tenure as Wigan Warriors head coach on a high with a gripping victory over Warrington Wolves in the Super League Grand Final.

Appointed in 2011, Wane took charge of Wigan for the final time on Saturday, leading his side to their third Grand Final triumph during that period and fifth overall.

Former Wigan winger Josh Charnley opened the scoring, but the Warriors hit back through the excellent Dom Manfredi, crossing in each half, and Tom Davies.

The result ends a disappointing first season for Warrington coach Steve Price, defeated in both domestic finals this term.

They were shocked by Catalans Dragons in the Challenge Cup final in August and have now suffered their fourth loss in the season-ending Old Trafford showpiece.

More to follow.

Wigan: Tomkins, Manfredi, Gildart, Sarginson, Davies, Williams, Leuluai, Navarrete, Powell, Flower, Greenwood, Bateman, O’Loughlin.

Substitutes: Clubb, Farrell, Sutton, Escare.

Warrington: Ratchford, Lineham, Goodwin, King, Charnley, Brown, Roberts, Hill, Clark, Cooper, Thompson, Hughes, Westwood.

Substitutes: Murdoch-Masila, Patton, Philbin, King.

Referee: Robert Hicks
