YOU can now watch the most famous Warrington Wolves New Year's Day game in full.

The Wire clash with Wigan on January 1, 1998, was christened as 'World War III' at the time by Warrington coach Tony Barrow and has gone down in history with that name ever since.

With the intense, ferocious and brutal affair on a puddle-splashed Wilderspool pitch involving five dismissals in the first half, various highlights reels available on YouTube have been watched almost one million times.

But Warrington Wolves have now published the entire match - and all its fireworks - on social media for the first time.

With Wire legends on show like Brian Johnson, Des Drummond, Paul Cullen, John Woods, Les Boyd, Kevin Tamati, Bob Jackson and Ronnie Duane there is a whole lot of class and skill on show too against a Wigan side featuring the likes of Andy Gregory, Ellery Hanley, Shaun Edwards, Adrian Shelford, Graeme West and Andy Goodway.

We won't spoil your viewing by giving away more details, as you can see it all for yourself here:
