Warrington versus Wigan was last year's Grand Final.
Now it's two teams desperate to salvage something from their season.
Incredibly, both are in the bottom half of Super league with pressure building on the head coaches.
But a Challenge Cup quarter final gives both a chance to lift the gloom, as David Chisnall reports.
Former Rugby League star Josh Charnley will bring the curtain down on his first season in Rugby Union as Sale take on Bath this Saturday.
The 25 year old winger left Wigan to join the Sharks back in October and admits the move has been tougher than he expected.
And, as David Chisnall reports, that's not the only big change in his life.
Wigan Warriors beat St Helens by 29 points to 18 in Super League earlier today.
It was a familiar Easter fixture though for St Helens the unfamiliar position of having no Head Coach.
Sean Long and Jamahl Lolesi are in temporary charge following this week's shock sacking of Keiron Cunningham.
Their job got a whole lot harder when Kyle Amor was sent off on 12 minutes for a high tackle on Liam Marshall. Lolesi criticised the decision in his press conference after the game at the DW Stadium.
It was an eighth successive Good Friday win for Wigan. It doesn't get any easier for Saints - who host Super League leaders Castleford on Monday.
Wigan forward Joel Tomkins believes the sacking of Keiron Cunningham will make St Helens an even tougher proposition.Read the full story ›

An inquest has heard that a doctor told police officers who were restraining former Wigan Warriors player Luke Rhoden 'You are asphyxiating him, you are going to kill him.'
Inquest resumes into death of Luke Rhoden. Jury are being shown footage of Luke falling from the roof of the Ibiza rocks hotel.
Det Insp Moore shows jury video of Luke Rhoden being restrained and says he believes one officer held a baton across Luke's head or neck.
Det Insp Moore says Greater Manchester police tried to contact Ibiza police but that 'they've no power to investigate in a foreign country'
Doctor who treated Luke Rhoden is giving evidence. He says police were holding a baton to Luke's neck & that he told them 3 times to stop.
Doctor tells police..'You are asphyxiating him (Luke Rhoden)..you are going to kill him.' He says by the time they stopped it was too late.
Wigan Warriors prop forward Dom Crosby has left the club to join rivals Warrington Wolves.
The 25-year-old broke into the first team at the DW Stadium in 2013, playing in four consecutive Grand Finals and making 102 appearances for the Warriors.
Wigan chairman Ian Lenagan said the club were unable to commit to a new and improved contract for Crosby.
After internal discussions, it was felt that the team had more than enough strength in the front-row to allow Dom to leave. The arrival of Romain Navarrete and the promising future for Academy graduate, Joe Bretherton, is a cost-effective and highly promising pairing for the future which, together with our existing 7 senior middles, gives us more than enough coverage in this position.
Having handed Dom his debut in 2012 it has been a pleasure to watch him grow and mature both on and off the field. Dom has enjoyed success at the Wigan Club winning two Grand Finals and playing over 100 games. He endured a difficult spell at the start of the year because of injury but bounced back well and deservedly walked away from Old Trafford last week with a winners' ring.
This was a difficult decision but one that we felt was right for all parties. Everyone at the Club wishes Dom well.
