Mossop hoping for special end
Wigan prop Lee Mossop is determined to go out on a high when he plays his last game for the Warriors in Saturday's Grand Final against Warrington.
The 24-year-old England international is heading down under to play for Parramatta Eels after five seasons at Wigan, one of four Warriors bowing out at Old Trafford.
Mossop told Sky Sports: "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.
"You have just got to foucus 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 per centers best and works hardest for each other that will tend to get the victory."
Wigan will be bidding to win the double after their Wembley success over Hull in August and Mossop is hoping that experience will stand them in good stead, adding:
Monaghan: Experience will help us
"We have done it in the Challenge Cup final earlier on in the year and we will be looking to do that again this Saturday."
Warrington hooker Michael Monaghan was on the losing side in last year's Grand Final and the Australian is relishing the prospect of a return to Old Trafford.
"It is one of the best stadiums in the world and to come here and play in such a big final against your local rivals is something I am really looking forward to," he said.
"The atmosphere here last year was pretty sepcial. That is probaly the one difference to Australia, I think. The crowd atmosphere here is that one step up on Australia and it is something I am looking forward to."
