  1. The curtain falls

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Another bruising, thrill-packed, rollercoaster of a domestic rugby league season has passed, with Wigan the victors.

    Warrington, awaiting a first championship since 1955, failed to follow in the footsteps of 2016's history makers Hull FC and Cronulla - who ended their drought with the NRL Grand Final win against Melbourne.

    Wigan end the year with a trophy, their doggedness and team spirit coming to the fore.

    That's it now til early next year... it can't come soon enough.

    Goodnight, and thanks for following the greatest game with us over the past eight months.

    It's been a pleasure.

  3. The end of an era

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    He might be famous for his commentary exploits on another broadcaster but Mike 'Stevo' Stephenson is a man who transcends the game - and he retired after today's game.

    Much like Eddie Waring and Ray French before him, Stevo has become synonymous with rugby league and his catchphrases like 'second stanza', 'T-R-Y-TIME' and 'utilise the dummy runner' have gone down in folklore.

    He will be missed.

  4. Not over yet...

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Super League might have been wrapped up with tonight's finish to proceedings and Wigan's championship - but there is still some significant rugby league to be played before the players get a proper break.

    England, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand will do battle in the Four Nations which kicks off at the end of the month.

    Australia play Scotland at Hull KR's Lightstream Stadium on Friday, 28 October.

    England host New Zealand at Huddersfield's John Smith's Stadium on Saturday, 29 October.

    You can follow it with TV, radio and online coverage right here on the BBC.

  5. Charnley's perfect finish

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Wigan winger Josh Charnley told Sky Sports:

    "I told Shaun I'd like to go out with silverware. What a way to finish.

    "I've been here many years, with these boys for years, it's going to be emotional but I'm looking forward to my next challenge."

    Charnley is heading to rugby union club Sale Sharks after this season.

  6. 'Sargmeister' signs off

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Wigan centre Dan Sarginson told Sky Sports:

    "I never knew how good this was going to feel.

    "We've had so many injuries, these blokes are the best I've played with.

    "I saw Josh Charnley in space and just smashed it.

    "I'm going to enjoy the next couple of days with these boys."

    England international Sarginson is heading down to the NRL in Australia to play for Gold Coast Titans in 2017.

  7. Farrell 'proud' of unique win

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Wigan back-rower Liam Farrell told Sky Sports:

    "Every Grand Final is unique, we've written our own story, we've had so much adversity and wanted to put it right.

    "To do what we've done is something really special.

    "Defence has pulled us out of games all year, we've ground out wins and tonight the lads really stuck to it."

  8. Wane's World

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Wigan coach Shaun Wane told Sky Sports:

    "The Warrington players and club are a champion club. They made it special.

    "I'm really proud of what we've done, it speaks voiumes for our toughness.

    "This is best ever, an unbelievable win. The players showed so much desire.

    "They put so many hours in, they deserve it."

  9. Wigan poised

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Brian Barwick has the trophy, Wigan are about to get the trophy...

    Sean O'Loughlin and Matty Smith lift it - and Wigan are confirmed Super League champions for 2016 to a backdrop of fireworks and spilt champagne.

    Wigan Warriors celebrate
  10. Warrington troop off

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Warrington, beaten at Wembley, make their way off the stage with another set of runners-up medals.

    Now, it's Wigan's turn to take the stage, and they look a lot happier about it!

  11. Liam Farrell - Harry Sunderland Trophy winner

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    England international Liam Farrell won the Harry Sunderland Trophy for his efforts - defensively solid and then popping up to put Oli Gildart in for his try.

    That performance could be massive towards getting him in Wayne Bennett's England squad this autumn.

  12. Wolves lair remains bare

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    How disappointing it is for the Warrington fans, players and coaching staff, particularly as they led for large periods before Wigan fought back.

    Kurt Gidley looked a shattered man, having played his heart out the whole year, the top points scorers in the Super League scored just one try against a dogged Wigan defence.

    Was the Ryan Atkins no-try the turning point? Who knows, but the game turned swiftly after that.

  13. Farewells to Grand Final heroes

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    How fitting for Dan Sarginson's kick to have teed up Josh Charnley, what with both players departing from Wigan this winter.

    Charnley crossed after Oliver Gildart had cancelled out a score from Declan Patton.

    That proved key and the pair will bow out for Gold Coast Titans and Sale Sharks respectively as heroes.

  14. WIGAN ARE SUPER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS.

    FT: Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Wigan Warriors come away from Old Trafford with a 21st championship, their fourth Super League title, having fought back from 6-2 down to win against Warrington.

    The Wolves wait goes on. They last won a championship in 1955.

  16. Post update

    Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Huge tackle by Anthony Gelling to stop Warrington's Kurt Gidley.

    Goodness knows who will get the Harry Sunderland Trophy here... they'll have to be dragged to receive it.

    That should be it.

  17. Post update

    Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Matty Smith slings a kick out on the full and Warrington get another chance to raid the Wigan line.

    LAST CHANCE SALOON.

  18. Post update

    Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Warrington have thrown the sink at Wigan, and the arch-battlers have been equal to it.

    Stefan Ratchford this time flipped over the whitewash to hand possession back to the Warriors.

    Pats on the back - inside the final three.

  19. Post update

    Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Those Wigan fans will be ready to get the party started, barring a Warrington fight-back.

    I've seen people broken by defeat, on another emotional plain in victory.

    Inside the final five...

  20. Post update

    Warrington 6-12 Wigan

    Matty Russell shepherded into touch by the Wigan defence as Warrington pushed it on the last to the left side.

    Was that the tackle that secured the Super League title?
