Super League Grand Final Harry Sunderland Trophy Predictions & Tips: Wigan Warriors v St Helens (Friday 20:00 GMT)

The top performer in the Grand Final will be named Harry Sunderland Trophy winner and some of the best players in the world have won this honour in the past, including Jason Robinson, Henry Paul, Chris Joynt, Leon Pryce, Rob Burrow, Kevin Sinfield, Tommy Leuluai, James Roby and Liam Farrell. Two players who have never won the award are Sean O’Loughlin and James Graham and both of them will be playing in their final game of rugby league on Friday. It might be sentiment, but I am going for the Wigan captain to not only lift the Super League trophy but also the man of the match award. He will probably be named as a substitute, but he will enter the fray when the Saints pack is tiring and will take control and guide the Warriors around the park. I feel he will ignite a spark inside the Wigan camp and be the best player on the park.
