IT'S MY VIEW: Stadium's special occasion
STADIUM manager Bernie Lenihan got it right as he locked the ground’s doors behind me late on Thursday night – ‘that was special’!
It was fantastic to win at St Helens’ Langtree Park last year in order to book a first Grand Final appearance, but to do it in front of a euphoric home crowd was simply wonderful.
The defeat of Huddersfield was Wolves’ highest stakes win at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, coming in the venue’s 10th anniversary campaign.
In two of the previous three years, play-offs tears had settled next to broken hearts on the terraces and seats.
Emotionally it was draining, with the absorbing highs and lows of the action to the presentations and farewells on the pitch after the final hooter.
The occasion marked the last home game in primrose and blue for skipper Adrian Morley, fellow prop Garreth Carvell, 2012 Lance Todd Trophy winner Brett Hodgson, Warringtononian packmen Mike Cooper and Tyrone McCarthy and Welsh winger Rhys Williams.
Thursday can only be topped by Grand Final glory.
