Super League Grand Final: Josh Jones front and centre for Salford Red Devils

A whole lot has changed to Josh Jones because his appearance in the Super League Grand Final.
Its five years because he was part of the St Helens team that defeated Wigan Warriors 14-6 against if side Salford Red Devils step out on the pitch, the club he will now line up, at Old Trafford.
Jones feels older and wiser and of course having had a spell playing rugby union for Exeter Chiefs, but the change has been shifting into the forwards.
The 26-year-old has got the transition from centre since joining Salford from 2016, some thing that came at the suggestion of head trainer Ian Watson.
After I came back into Salford, Watto said did I wish to play in the rear , Jones told Sky Sports. I enjoy getting in the middle, I like defending, I enjoy attacking, I enjoy playing off the half and being involved a bit more.
Since then, I have right into it and fortunately Ive had a wonderful year this season – and its not ended yet.
I do not need to be quick to play back either, which is terrific! I will only rely on my power and my footwork.
The fact underlines the rampaging danger he poses at the forward only 3 players in Super League have created metres than the 3,383 Jones has racked up from 461 conveys this year – one of them being team-mate Jackson Hastings.
It is no surprise to Jones that the Red Devils half-back that is inspirational claimed the 2019 Man of Steel award, hailing not his performances for the group but for assisting the Blackbrook amateur bring his game on too.
He has brought my game on leaps and bounds and that is why he won Man of Steel, since hes been the best player in the league all year – and it has shown, Jones said.
He has brought more of this enjoyment factor back for me personally. We are great partners about the field and off it, and out of everyone I spend more time and Joey Lussick off the area – with the way we play on the field, and thats been duplicated.
He has produced my stats go through the roof and Ive never worked so hard in a game because of him! But hes a great player and bloke, and when theres anybody to be a talisman for your club its him.
Jones performances have caught the eye of Great Britain head coach Wayne Bennett also, with the back row being named as the only Salford participant in the operation group for the upcoming winter excursion.
The chance of being on the airplane for its Lions tour for more than a decade has meant some disruption to personal aims, particularly having to put back due to getting married the day following this weeks Grand Final, his honeymoon.
But its a forfeit Jones is happy to make if it means being part of the squad.
Ive got a very busy week, Jones explained. Ive got a Grand Final Saturday, get married on Sunday and then, when I get about the excursion, I venture out together on Wednesday.
The honeymoon plans are long gonebut we can go away any moment. Playing so that I couldnt pass that opportunity up.
I had the old Great Britain duplicate shirt, so that is kind of my last memory of it and also to wear that shirt could make me pleased with myself – and my family will be proud of me too
The Grand Final is the only thing on Jones mind at present before he joins Super League competitions Hull FC season, and it will mark the final match.
But its a strange twist of fate he finds himself enjoying against the club he won the Grand Final with – something thats not missing on Jones on a few of leagues most significant phases his final match for Salford.
It is almost written in the stars, is not it? What a way to bow out, Jones explained. I enjoy playing against Saints and I always have done since I have been in Salford.
If we could conduct the way we know we can then well definitely have a chance of winning.
