Wigan prop Lee Mossop admits winning the Super League Grand Final on Saturday would be the perfect way to end his spell at the Warriors.
Shaun Wane’s men beat Leeds on Friday night to book their place at Old Trafford where they will now meet Warrington who came through against League Leaders’ Shield winners Huddersfield.
It promises to be an emotional night for Wigan, as Parramatta-bound Mossop is not the only big name moving to the NRL this winter.
Veteran winger Pat Richards is set to return to Wests Tigers while inspirational full-back Sam Tomkins recently signed a world-record deal with New Zealand Warriors.
Furthermore, second-row Chris Tuson is due to join Hull FC in 2014 and coach Wane will certainly need to be busy over the next few weeks as he looks to fill the huge gaps the departures will leave in his squad.
Mossop admits victory on Saturday would be the perfect way to end his spell at the DW Stadium but is determined to ensure his emotions don’t get the better of him on what is sure to be a dramatic night at Old Trafford.
“There is me, Pat (Richards), Sam (Tomkins) and Chris Tuson, all going at the end of the year, so to bow out on a Grand Final win would be something special,” he told Sky Sports. “You have just got to focus on the stuff that you can do.
“As a team we are preparing the best we can this week and when it comes to Saturday it will be the team that does the one percenters best and works hardest for each other that will tend to get the victory.”
