Double Honours for Wigan Warriors

Posted on January 4th, 2011

More trophies for Wigan Warriors with a Super League Grand Final and the League Leaders Shield. Harris & Ross runs the medical department for the club and that meant Rob ran all the games, including the Grand Final at Old Trafford.

The club claimed its first League Leader’s Shield for a decade with a 18-38 win over Hull KR at Craven Road.

They did it the hard way though letting a seemingly dominant 0-14 lead slip and within 8 minutes of the restart Hull had surged back to 18-14. 4 tries in the last 20 minutes settled the tie and it was relief all round.

It’s even longer since Grand Final silverware has been in the trophy cabinet – 12 years in fact. But it was a sweet victory over St Helens with a blitz of tries right at the start giving Wigan a 16-0 lead.

Having lost against the Saints and Bradford Bulls on the last 2 visits to Old Trafford, this time the Wign Warriors made sure winning 22-10.

Rob had his work cut out though as Man of Steel, Pat Richards limped off 5 minutes before half time having snapped his Achilles rendering him unavailable for the second half – and the next six months.

Further disaster was to follow with the Wigan Warriors’ Grand final result hanging in the balance at half time as three more of the players including Pat’s back-up goal kicker needing serious medical attention and intervention during the break.

It took some great team work by Rob, Alan Raw, Becky Hodgkiss and the two doctors including Hope Hospital Medical Director Chris Brookes to revive the players allowing them to get back out there after half time and although limping through the second half the brave Warriors hung on to take a well deserved victory.

Pat Richards was promptly operated on three days later by leasing surgeon Mr Simon Roberts and a full recovery is expected with a return around April.
