Warrington forward Simon Grix believes Saturday’s Grand Final against Wigan is the “pinnacle” of rugby league and is desperate to end the season with some silverware.
The Wolves go into the match after knocking Huddersfield out in the qualifying semi-finals, a victory that saw them through to their second consecutive Old Trafford showpiece after losing to Leeds last year.
Despite again playing some scintillating rugby, it’s been a mixed campaign for Tony Smith’s men. They missed out on the League Leader’s Shield to the Giants while they also went out in the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup.
Wigan themselves had an inconsistent end to the campaign after claiming victory in the Cup but have rediscovered their form and are arguably the favourites having knocked out Leeds last Friday.
The Cherry and Whites are also set to lose a number of their players to the NRL this winter, meaning they will have extra
motivation to produce a performance in Manchester.
However, Warrington’s Grix says that the Wolves are equally determined to make a success out of their return to Old Trafford and has promised that his side will be doing all they can to ensure that this time around they emerge as Super League champions.
“We haven’t got the Challenge Cup, we haven’t got the League Leader’s Shield but we have reached the Grand Final,” the versatile forward told the Warrington Guardian.
“And this is the big one, it’s the pinnacle. It would be historic for our club and it would be a part of history to be in the first team to do it. We’re going to put everything we can into this 80 minutes to come good.”
