AS part of our Grand Final preview, we have been looking back at previous meetings between Saints and Wigan at this stage of the competition.

And what has been more memorable than the last time the two old rivals met at Old Tafford.

In 2014, injury-depleted Saints pulled off a memorable 14-6 win over old foe Wigan to end their Old Trafford hoodoo. The incident packed game had plenty of highlights - and one low point.

Here are ten memorable moments from the season finale at the Theatre of Dreams, with pictures supplied by Bernard Platt.

St Helens Star:

1. James – The Manchester band really got the atmosphere bouncing in the Saints end in when they sang Come Home and Sit Down.

Lead singer Tim Booth’s walk through the crowd packed into the Stretford End before the game went down so well that Saints fans have been singing Sit Down as an anthem ever since.

St Helens Star:

2. Flag waving crowd – The walk out in front of 70,000 highly partisan fans was spine tingling. The supporters raised the roof and really backed the team for the full 80 minutes.

St Helens Star:

3. Mose Masoe’s first tackle – Saints had to match the Warriors physically and Masoe’s first hit set the tone. Saints’ pack was up for it and there were going to be no backward steps.

St Helens Star:

4. Flower’s red card – Ben Flower’s sickening two-punch assault on Saints half back Lance Hohaia was the pivotal moment in the match.

All of a sudden Saints’ were no longer underdogs and the look on Wigan boss Shaun Wane’s face as the Welshman trudged down in the tunnel in disgrace said that.

St Helens Star:

5. Sia’s try – After a jittery first half which saw them go in 6-2 down, Saints needed to post a response. Alex Walmsley’s strong run set up the position for James Roby to send Sia Soliola driving to the line, forcing the ball over the line despite the attention of three defenders. It was a massive try.

6. Tommy’s tackle – When Liam Farrell broke through, it looked like Wigan were going to post an immediate response – but Tommy Makinson backed himself to nail the powerful forward at the corner. It was a game saving tackle.

St Helens Star:

7. Makinson’s try – Bereft of half backs, Saints full back Paul Wellens was called on to put on the crucial last tackle plays.

But no experienced number seven could have topped the way Wellens chipped his kick so perfectly towards the posts for Tommy Makinson to attack.

Grabbing the ball in mid air, Makinson saw off the challenge of Matty Smith and Matt Bowen to ground the ball. After being mobbed by his teammates, the young wing leapt with delight in front of the Saints.

8. Percival knocking the ball into touch – Memories of the 2011, when the game went away in the last quarter, have scarred many a Saints fan.

The last 15 minutes dragged for the fans praying for the final whistle – and although the confident ones were celebrating – others bit their nails relentlessly until the countdown started.

When Wigan’s last throw – a high cross kick – was tapped dead by Mark Percival the party could really start.

St Helens Star:

9. Wello falling to his knees – Nothing summed up what that victory meant to the team and the town than the sight of skipper Paul Wellens touching his badge and falling to his knees after the final whistle. Memories of five Grand Final defeats were all of a sudden swept away – and against the team’s bitterest of foe.

St Helens Star:

10. Lifting the trophy – The image of Paul Wellens lifting Saints' first Super League title since 2006 – surrounded by a squad that had written off, even by its own supporters at times - was a joy to behold.
