Wane's World for winners Wigan

Younger viewers to the Super League Show might not know it, but current Wigan head coach Shaun Wane was once a terrace favourite for his work on the pitch.

His performance in the 8-2 World Club Challenge win against Manly at Central Park in 1987 is the stuff of legend, and he also played a key role for the Cherry & Whites in the 1986 John Player Special Final.

Elland Road was the setting, Challenge Cup finalists-to-be Hull KR were the opposition and a battered and bruised Wane, along with current Bath rugby union coach Mike Ford ensured the silverware headed west of the Pennines.

For more classic clips from the BBC rugby league archives, watch the Super League Show every Monday night on BBC One in the north of England (transmission times vary) and nationwide on BBC Two, Tuesday lunchtimes.

The show is also available for seven days, on the BBC iplayer.
