Featherstone Rovers saw off the threat of London Broncos to lift the Championship Shield Grand Final prize with a 36-4 victory at Widnes.
Rovers won six of seven games after the split to finish top, and scored three first-half tries through Matt James, Ben Blackmore and Paul Sykes.
Rhys Williams' try got London on the board after half-time, but Sykes extended the lead with a penalty goal.
James' second, Ian Hardman and Gareth Moore tries sealed the silverware.
Lions roar again
Swinton ensured their return to the second tier with a thrilling 29-28 win against a dogged Keighley Cougars in the League One Grand Final.
With Oldham already promoted, their tie was about more than just a trophy and the two teams served up tries and drama.
The Lions outscored the Cougars four-to-three in tries to build up a 26-16 lead at the break.
Two second-half scores from Oliver Pursglove and player-coach Paul March had Swinton rocking but the boot of Chris Atkins with a penalty goal and a one-pointer steered John Duffy's side home.
Leigh has something to celebrate
Although Paul Rowley's Centurions were unable to carry their regular-season form into The Qualifiers, the town has enjoyed a Grand Final success in the shape of amateurs Leigh Miners Rangers.
The Rangers - who reached the Challenge Cup fifth round earlier this season - beat another strong outfit, Wath Brow Hornets, 32-22 in the Conference Challenge Trophy.
