Wigan coach Shaun Wane says he will show his players video in the lead-up to Saturday's World Club Series clash with Brisbane of the Broncos goading the DW Stadium crowd at full-time last year.
While Anthony Gelling's bizarre attempted charge down of the winning penalty goal dominated discussion following the NRL side's 14-12 golden point win in 2015, Brisbane players gestured to the hostile crowd when the result was sealed.
"I'm sure supporters will remember that," Wane told Fairfax Media at John Smiths Stadium after an 18-13 win over Huddersfield yesterday.
"I have video of what happened at full-time last year and I plan to show it to them this week, to remind them that no matter how hard they fought, they ended up with nothing.
"I saw what happened. When you win, you can do anything you like. I don't see it as nasty, I see it as giving back a bit of banter. I want to remind my players what it was like to lose."
Wane argued the reaction of the Broncos 12 months ago disproved the comments of forward Alex Glenn, who said upon arrival in Britain on Thursday that the players saw the World Club Series match mainly as a trial.
"Sure they can come out and say stuff like that, that they don't care about the result," Wane said.
"But you could see last year they did and I believe they want to win this year every bit as much as we do." The Wigan mentor also stirred the pot following the comeback win over the Giants when he referred to the penalty that decided last year's clash without being prompted in the media conference.
"Shocking decision at the end of the game, we all agree, Terrible decision. It would never happen over in Australia," he said. "Our players showed toughness and they were tough. The were great, Brisbane last year. I didn't want it to be decided on refereeing and I don't think Brisbane did either.
"Unfortunately it was, but at the end of the day they won and I'm only here to win these games."
Half George Williams missed the Super League round two win with a shoulder injury but will be fit to take on the Broncos, Wane said.
North Queensland touch down at Heathrow on Saturday afternoon, local time, for the main event next Sunday against Leeds. On Friday, St Helens meet Sydney Roosters, who are currently in camp in Dubai.
For their part, a harrowing one-time-only video review of last year's heartbreaking NRL grand final loss has helped Brisbane's shattered players move on and ready themselves to go one better in 2016.
Seven-time premiership-winning coach Wayne Bennett sat down the whole playing group and showed them the good, bad and ugly of the 17-16 loss to North Queensland.
"That was very tough, to be honest. It was something that I wasn't looking forward to throughout the week," Glenn said. "That was the only time I've watched any part of the grand final and it will be the only time I watch it."
