Finally, as the saying goes, the club that is hated, adored and never ignored, the former Super League champions Wigan Warriors.
The Warriors, under Shaun Wane, had a much tougher season to endure, especially with personnel given their injuries we were fully made aware of.
Unfortunately, they couldn’t hold on to their World crown either but did give their opponents a scare with a strong ending to the 2017 season.
Plenty more of that to come, find out below how their season went on and what could have gone better.
Best Performance: St Helens 16-26 Wigan Warriors
Their finest 80 minutes had to be against old enemies St Helens in their 26-16 win at the Totally Wicked stadium.
Nothing sweeter than getting one over your bitter derby rivals and that’s what Wigan did here with a hard fought win in the Super 8s.
Young Oliver Gildart bagged two early tries, adding to efforts from Anthony Gelling and George Williams.
The win also spoiled the welcome party of Ben Barba, who recently finished his drugs ban but couldn’t get off the mark in such a big game.
Well done to Wigan for keeping them at bay as the Saints were starting to hit some form, but not that night, despite a touch of controversy involving the likes of Willie Isa.
Nevertheless, Wigan walked away worthy winners, setting up a tense race towards the top four.
