Shaun Wane has been voted by his peers as Super League's Coach of the Year.

He was presented with the honour at a glitzy awards dinner in Manchester.

It is the first time Wane has won the prize in seven years as Wigan's head coach. Michael Maguire previously won it in 2010.

Wane is leaving his hometown club at the end of the season to take up a role in Scotland RU.

Meanwhile, Wigan's John Bateman missed out on the Steve Prescott Man of Steel.

The Canberra-bound forward was on a three-man shortlist with St Helens duo James Roby and Ben Barba.

Barba took the coveted award.
