  1. Old Trafford awaits

    FT: Wigan 28-18 Hull FC

    Wigan Warriors

    If the Grand Final lives up to this game, we're in for a brilliant contest one week from tomorrow.

    We'll have more live text coverage of the build-up and the match, but that's it from me until then.

    Thanks for joining me over the last couple of nights. Until Old Trafford, goodbye.

  2. Coming up tomorrow

    Hull KR v Salford Red Devils (Sat)

    So, we know our Super League finalists, but tomorrow will see the line-up for next year's competition rounded off.

    Hull KR host Salford Red Devils in the Million Pound Game, hoping to retain their place in rugby league's top division.

    You'll be able to listen to build-up and local radio commentary from that game on this site from 14:30 tomorrow.

  3. Warrington are "worthy opponents"

    FT: Wigan 28-18 Hull FC

    Anthony Gelling

    Wigan Warriors head coach Shaun Wane told Sky Sports:

    "They're a lot bigger than us, they're a huge team and they're very well coached.

    "For our players to stand up, in a bad situation with injuries, to stand up like that was a tremendous effort by us.

    "Tony Smith's done a fantastic job at Warrington this year and they're worthy opponents to be there."

  4. Radford proud of effort

    FT: Wigan 28-18 Hull FC

    Hull FC head coach Lee Radford told Sky Sports:

    "It was a really good effort in the second-half, I don't mind going down like that.

    "We haven't been that hot in the Super 8s, we've defended well but with the ball we haven't been where we needed to be."

  5. Grand Final 'going to be a great game'

    FT: Wigan 28-18 Hull FC

    Wigan hooker Sam Powell told Sky Sports:

    "Hull came out and we did speak about it, there was going to be a point in the game where they were going to be on top.

    "We've faced some adversity this year with injuries but we're not going to use it as an excuse.

    "In could have been any four teams this year, we'll go rest up, look at Warrington, but it's going to be a great game.

  6. Wigan reach the Super League Grand Final

    FT: Wigan 28-18 Hull FC

    There's barely any time left after that try before Wigan boot the ball into touch to end the game.

    It was a magnificent match in the end after the hosts controlled the first period, but the Black and Whites couldn't maintain their momentum having taken a narrow lead late on.

    Warrington await Warriors in eight days time at Old Trafford.

  7. TRY: Wigan 28-18 Hull FC

    Anthony Gelling

    Hull fought back so bravely, but it's all in vain as Wigan guarantee they'll be heading to Old Trafford.

    Warriors get the ball out right to Anthony Gelling, who slides over the line to extend the lead to eight points.

    Matty Smith is perfect with the kick. Wigan's fans are ecstatic.

  8. Post update

    Wigan 22-18 Hull FC

    Wigan play it safe in possession, but Matty Smith produces a magical kick to force Jamie Shaul back behind his line, where he's wrapped up to bring up another goal-line drop-out.

    Warriors will be in the Grand Final if they can get another try on the board now.

  9. Post update

    Wigan 22-18 Hull FC

    Marc Sneyd launches a ball high, high into air from left to right and causes more problems for the Wigan defence.

    Lewis Tierney takes it for Wigan, but they're penalised for Olivert Gildart's block on Steve Michaels.

    Another chance for Hull, which ends in John Bateman getting tackled behind the posts for a goal-line drop-out.

  10. TRY: Wigan 22-18 Hull FC

    Sam Powell

    Wigan keep the ball alive brilliantly with quick hands on the fourth tackle, but Hull eventually get a hit in.

    No worries for Warriors, who feed Sam Powell to get low and slide over between the sticks, before Matty Smith adds the easy two points.

    Can Hull fight back one last time? They have eight minutes left.

  11. Into the last ten minutes

    Wigan 16-18 Hull FC

    The game is wide open, either side could win it from here.

    Hull pin Wigan back deep, but Warriors drive the length of the field and force a goal-line drop-out.

    There's not long left for the hosts now though.

  12. Post update

    Wigan 16-18 Hull FC

    Jordan Thompson

    This is an absolutely sensational contest.

    Wigan were cruising before the break, but now they have less than 15 minutes to find a score to get back in front.

    Brilliant tackling from Hull sees them hold Wigan back from the line, and then a thumping hit from Jordan Thompson jars the ball loose.

  13. TRY: Wigan 16-18 Hull FC

    Steve Michaels

    He's given it to Hull!

    Steve Michaels reaches out and gets a finger on a grubber kick to ground the ball after Lewis Tierney had spilled it.

    Marc Sneyd kicks a beautiful conversion from the right-hand touchline. Hull are ahead for the first time in the game.

  14. Try still under review

    Wigan 16-12 Hull FC

    The tension is absolutely unbearable, I can only imagine what it must be like as a fan of either of these two sides.

    Minutes pass before video referee Ben Thaler makes his decision....

  15. Try for...someone?

    Wigan 16-12 Hull

    Hull have the ball for what seems like an age before Wigan get the first tackle in, after they'd failed to get under Marc Sneyd's high kick.  

    The Black and Whites think they've got the ball down - Robert Hicks disagrees and Wigan run the ball the length of the field to touch down.

    The video referee is called to see if Hull grounded the ball first.

  16. Post update

    Wigan 16-12 Hull FC

    Dan Sarginson falls to earth with a hefty crash after being flipped in the air when he makes contact with Danny Washbrook.

    There was no malice in it from Washbrook, but it's a painful landing for Sarginson even so.

    Meanwhille, Liam Watts has gone off the field for Hull with an arm injury.

  17. PENALTY: Wigan 16-12 Hull FC

    Matty Smith

    Matty Smith kicks through the posts for the second time of the night to give Wigan their first points of the half.

    Warriors might have hoped that would take the sting out of proceedings just a little, but Frank-Paul Nu'uausala knocks on to give possession back to Hull on half-way.

    Matty Smith
  18. Post update

    Wigan 14-12 Hull FC

    Kirk Yeaman spills the ball to give Wigan a much-needed chance to add a few more points.

    Matty Smith tries the grubber kick through to himself and is tackled off the ball by Mark Minichiello.

    Wigan opt to go for two points.

  19. Post update

    Wigan 14-12 Hull FC

    Quote Message: The two missed kicks could be real crucial.
  20. TRY: Wigan 14-12 Hull FC

    Liam Watts

    Wigan dominated the first 40 minutes, but they are absolutely reeling now.

    Half a dozen Warriors players are offside close to their line to give Hull great starting position, and Liam Watts punches over from close range.

    Marc Sneyd has another easy kick - Hull have pulled 12 points back inside 10 minutes.
