Personally, it has to be David Hodgson's last minute try to beat Hull at the Magic weekend, followed by the half hour-long celebrations in the concourse afterwards where the police, stewards and a lot of other teams' supporters joined in. It was an unreal experience.

Ryan Baileys break for McGuire's try at Catalans the other week. Can't beat a big prop is full flight swatting off would be tacklers.

Warrington Wolves v St Helens, regular season, St Helens get in front through Paul Wellens, the Sky cameras pan to Mike Rush and Keiron Cunnigham gesticuating for the side to get a roll-on. This is picked up in the away end where almost the entire away support copies the two coaches.hand signals.
A quality moment in an eminently forgettable season..

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is

Tom Briscoe cutting through the middle of the Leeds defence was a highlight for me - strength & pace, a great try. :)


But the Saints v Catalans ending was the best all round. Wish I'd have seen it live instead of watching Salford beat Hull in a dismal game!

Best single moment of spontaneous joy was Jack Littlejohn's penalty after the siren to give Newtown a 26-25 win - getting the Bluebags into the finals with the last kick of the regular season. Much man-hugging ensued.

Closer to home, Hornets' thumping of Barrow to deny them the CC1 title was probably the highlight of our season.

Sticking 60 past Fev at Post Office Road was good and was going to be the highlight, till the play-offs and then it just got better and better every week, culminating in the aforementioned try last Sunday and the climax at just gone 6 when we won the GF!

Champions, it's a good feeling...

2 for me.

Magic Weekend was, as ever, simply brilliant. I really like the way the Wire fans embrace these events and I have never failed to enjoy things like this, Cup Finals, Barcelona etc with the Wire fans.

Last weekend beating Saints in the Semi. To win is such style, playing some lovely Rugby against a team playing well was amazing, and the sense of relief that we had finally made a Grand Final. I've been to around half a dozen of them and had always dreamed that at one stage I'd be able to watch my own team there.

Hopefully we'll play as well as we can and tomorrow will be the highlight of a very enjoyable season.

Finally seeing Warrington win at Wembley (I went in '75 and '90, but not in '74, '09, and '10).

Honourable mention to the Skolars season. This season I got round to watching them regularly, and apart from the home game against Workington I was very impressed.

I really wanted the Bronco's game at Leyton to be successful as I only live five minutes away, but unfortunately it's not the answer for them - if there is an answer that is.
