Wigan Warriors Coach Shaun Wane Crowd Surfs After Super League Grand Final Win Over Warrington
Departing Wigan Warriors coach Shaun Wane celebrated his side's 12-4 victory over Warrington Wolves in the Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford by crowd-surfing in the post-match celebrations on Saturday evening.
A brace of tries from Dom Manfredi and another score from Tom Davies was enough to hand the Warriors a battling win over the Wolves, whose points came from a former Warriors star Josh Charnley, but in the aftermath of Wigan's victory the attention turned to Wane, who is leaving his hometown club after seven sensational years at the helm of the legendary club and the 54-year-old assured he went out in style.
After the action finished at the Theatre of Dreams, the Wigan players, staff and supporters all celebrated another Grand Final victory, and with a multitude of players surrounding Wane then went on to hold the Wiganer aloft in the air and duly passed him through their arms in spectacular celebratory scenes.
After a superb playing career at Wigan, Wane then was handed the head coach role in 2011 and seven years later he departs with three Grand Final wins to his name, and he is now set to take a position with Scotland Rugby as he leaves his hometown club to pursue another challenge.
However, Wane will exit the club he loves on the highest not possible and his team's battling win over the 'Wire' last night will live long in the memory and his crowd-surfing is sure to be an image that lives with his adoring fans.
