Friday 27th November, 20:00, Grand Final, KCOM Stadium, Hull, St Helens versus Wigan Warriors Match Preview

Rugby League’s showpiece event takes place in a completely different atmosphere to what is normally expected of the end-of-season finale. Taking place in Hull for the first time, the Super League Grand Final will also be played without a crowd. But, it will be witness to what promises to be a thrilling clash between arch-rivals Wigan and St Helens.

The Warriors finished top of the table after enjoying 11 league wins in the past 13 games following lockdown whilst Saints were also able to win 11, but lost two in a row before hammering Catalans last week.
