|Try: Welsby Goals: Coote 2|
Teenager Jack Welsby scored a last-gasp try as St Helens retained their Super League crown with the most dramatic climax in Super League Grand Final history against Wigan Warriors.
Welsby’s winner came after the full-time hooter, touching down after a drop-goal kick came off the post.
The score had been locked 4-4, with Lachlan Coote landing two kicks either side of Jake Bibby’s try for Wigan.
Welsby’s quick thinking, however, proved decisive.
Having the youngest player on the field score the winning try in such sensational fashion gave Saints, England and Great Britain great James Graham a triumphant farewell.
It also made for a heart-breaking way to send Wigan talisman Sean O’Loughlin into retirement.
