Summary: Wigan dominated this period and this season was no exception. They won the league, Challenge Cup and Premiership final (columns 1 to 3 below) The only blemishes were the lesser League Cup and Lancashire Cup (columns 4 and 5). They were given 68 points in my awards system. Castleford had a dig and took the Yorkshire Cup for a creditable 60 points. St Helens also got the same number of points with the Lancashire Cup victory. After that it was just crumbs for the rest.
