This live event has finished

Man of the match Rhys Evans says: "It's an amazing feeling for the lads. We've put a lot of hard work into this year. Last year we came up one short, losing to Wigan in the final, so there was a big ethos about winning this game and we thoroughly deserved it I thought."
Wolves under 20s head coach Richard Marshall says: "I was really pleased with our performance. I thought we defended really well, probably the best we have defended all year. We shut down a lot of their threats. Their coach was full of priase for our young players."
