Super League Grand Final 2020
After the most unique Super League season in history where every single player, manager, owner, medical team member, coaching team, retail staff member, kit person, grounds person, coach driver, administrator, tv companies, sponsors and everybody else involved in the game should be applauded for bringing joy and excitement to fans and for getting through a season no matter what was thrown at them.
Best of all the season lived fully up to expectation and gave us all incredible and exciting rugby league football action with the players giving there all in every game.
Fittingly the 2020 Super League Grand Final is also set to be a unique experience as not only is the final been played on a Friday night instead of a Saturday evening, but it will also be played in Yorkshire for the first time as the game will be held at Hull FC’s MKM Stadium.
Of course with no fans in attendance, there will also be a unique atmosphere for a Grand Final that normally see’s 70’000+ fans in attendance but as the players have shown time and time again this season, the lack of atmosphere doesn’t equate to a lack of intensity and effort and that will certainly be the case once more in the Grand Final.
The Super League Grand Final is always one of the highlights of the sporting calendar, not just in England but globally and with so many changes it is perhaps fitting that the 2020 final will feature 2 of the most successful teams in the competition history to give a sense of ‘normality’ about it.
Both the Wigan Warriors and St Helens head from one end of the M62 to the other and despite been so far form home, this game will still have a massive local derby feel to it and when you add in the importance of the game and the incredible talent on both sides of the field and you have all that you need for a match of the season contender and most importantly you have all that you need for a must watch match.
This is one of the biggest rivalries in the world of rugby and is always a grand occasion, so it is fitting that it will be the Grand Final of 2020.
Both teams, as you would expect from a final, come into the match in great form but after Wigan pipped their arch-rivals to the League leaders Shield it will be Saints who come into the game with a point to prove.
Super League Grand Final Prediction
The Grand Final is always a tough match to predict, as it should, and this one is certainly no exception.
Both teams are full of quality across the board with a great mix of youngsters who are potential stars of the future and well established players with experience of big matches such as this.
That will help both teams in the early going when nerves are always at the fore and it will be in that opening quarter of the game when the match could easily be won and lost.
Saints are an incredible team of seeing out games when they are in front and whilst Wigan are also strong leaders, they tend to give opposition more chances and so they are more adept at coming from behind.
That of course means that is Wigan can get out to a decent early lead, it could easily nullify Saints style whilst in Saints can get out into an early lead, it could be a long night for the Warriors.
Whilst both teams are excellent in attack and have almost the perfect mix of flair and simple grunt with the ball in hand, these big matches often come down to defence and both teams also excel there.
Wigan are much more structured than their rivals and that will certainly help out in defence in a game such as this one but St Helens more fluid attacking style will also help them to create gaps and to open Wigan’s defence.
It often comes down to a special moment in matches such as this and whilst Wigan have players who can provide those moments including the likes of Bevan French and Jackson Hastings, Saints tend to use well-rehearsed set plays to open up teams and create moments of brilliance.
I guess that what we are trying to say here is that the margins are incredibly tight in this one and the match will likely be in the balance throughout with the winner been the team who can take their chances when they come around as they will likely be few and far between and incredibly difficult to create- as it should be between top teams full of international stars.
