Wind the clock back to 2015 and Leeds and Wigan were locked in an incredible battle for top spot.
The helicopter containing the League Leaders’ Shield had been circling to and from the John Smith’s Stadium as Leeds and Huddersfield went toe-to-toe whilst the Warriors hosted Castleford. All Leeds had to do was win to secure first, but top spot changed hands six times over the night.
In fact, whilst Wigan thrashed the Tigers 47-12, Leeds were behind 16-14 as the hooter sounded. Cue Ryan Hall. Danny McGuire kicked over the Huddersfield defence, but the bounce of the ball fooled Giants fullback Scott Grix.
Hall scooped it up magnificently and stormed to the line, securing a home semi-final as well as the extra £100,000 for finishing top.
