Season Review- Part One

Season Review- Part One

As 2012 comes to a close we look back on the season that was Super League XVII, a year which saw Shaun Wane take charge of the Club for his first season as Head Coach, the winning of the League Leaders' Shield for the second time in three years and the continued development of talented young local players coming through to make their First Team debuts.

It was a season which ended with Wigan top of the table and recorded 25 wins from their 33 games in all competitions. There was some terrific action and some stand out performances both as a team and individually.

Over the next few days we will look back at the action on the field, we start by going back to the beginning of the season and the start of the 2012 season.
