Wigan Warriors Quadruple Triumph: Challenge Cup Victory Highlights Historic Season

Wigan Warriors Claim Quadruple Glory with Challenge Cup Triumph

In a dominant display at Wembley, the Wigan Warriors clinched the 2024 Challenge Cup title with an 18-8 victory over Warrington Wolves in front of a crowd of 64,845. Matt Peet’s side has now completed a historic quadruple, holding aloft the Super League trophy, the League Leader’s Shield, the World Club Challenge, and the coveted Challenge Cup.

Wigan’s Australian speedster Jai Field (8/10) was a constant threat, while Abbas Miski (8/10) and the impressive 20-year-old Zack Eckersley (8/10) also shone. Bevan French (9/10) was awarded the Lance Todd Trophy for a masterful display, including a spectacular solo try.

“Wigan’s triumph sees them become only the third team in the modern era, and the sixth in history, to hold all four major trophies simultaneously.”

Skipper Liam Farrell (8/10) burst through Warrington’s defence to score the crucial try on the hour mark, while Luke Thompson (8/10), Brad O’Neill (8/10), and Mike Cooper (8/10) laid the platform with their dominant displays through the middle.

The Warriors’ bench also made a significant impact, with Ethan Havard (8/10), Patrick Mago (8/10), and Kruise Leeming (8/10) all contributing to the comprehensive victory.
