Wigan Warriors staged the greatest comeback in Grand Final history to beat Warrington Wolves 30-16 and clinch the Super League title at Old Trafford.

They're the first club to clinch the league and Challenge Cup double since St Helens in 2006.

They were made to fight for the trophy by Warrington, who blazed into a 16-2 first half lead through tries from Joel Monaghan, Simon Grix and Ben Westwood. All came in a sensational eight-minute purple patch for the Wolves.

But Darrell Goulding narrowed their lead by forcing his way over for a try just before half-time. And Wigan were unstoppable in the second half, running in a further four unanswered tries as Warrington's lead was dismantled by scores from Michael McIlorum, Josh Charnley, Blake Green and Pat Richards.

Green, knocked unconscious by a punch from Westwood just two minutes into the game, was instrumental in the win and lifted the Harry Sunderland Trophy as man of the match.

It was the perfect finale for Wigan stars Sam Tomkins, Lee Mossop and Richards, who were playing their last games for the club. Though Warrington's Adrian Morley, Gareth Carvell and Mike Cooper were forced to sign off in despair.
