Wigan Warriors are one of rugby league's most successful ever clubs and have consistently challenged for the Super League title since the move to summer rugby in 1996.

They emerged as champions in 1998 and were defeated Grand Finalists in 2000 and 2001, although their dominance of previous years has yet to be reproduced.
