Wigan Warriors beat Leeds Rhinos to win the Women's Super League Grand Final for the first time.
The match was tied at 16-16 heading into the final minute, but Charlotte Foley's penalty handed Wigan victory at the Manchester Regional Arena.
The Warriors had earlier led by 10 points thanks to Rachel Thompson's hat-trick and Georgia Wilson's score.
Caitlin Beevers and Suze Hill levelled it late on, but Leeds were denied an historic treble by Foley's kick.
Rhinos, who also crossed the whitewash through Rhiannon Marshall, were looking to add to their Challenge Cup and League Leaders' Shield successes.
This was only the second Women's Super League Grand Final, after Bradford Bulls won the inaugural competition in 2017.
