Leeds Rhinos' Kevin Sinfield

The champions looked to have lost their grip on the crown when Wigan came from 11-0 down at half-time to lead 12-11 but skipper Kevin Sinfield kicked a penalty three minutes from the end to send them through to another Grand Final.

There was almost another twist to a frantic finale when Wigan stand-off Brett Finch, playing his final match for the club, was narrowly wide with a drop-goal attempt that would have set up extra time.
