Adrian Morley is hoping to end his Warrington career on a high with victory over Wigan in the Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The England international is leaving the Halliwell Jones Stadium to join hometown club Salford next season.

Morley admits it will be difficult to leave Wolves and the Manchester United fan is keen to make up for defeat to Leeds Rhinos in last year's Grand Final by helping his side to victory over the Warriors.
"It will be emotional, although I've tried not to think about it," he told Sky Sports News.
"When you play somewhere for seven years it's going to be emotional but I am glad I will get to play my final game here in the Grand Final.
"I am very proud of my Warrington career and the icing on the cake would be a victory on Saturday.
"The boys will be a lot better for the experience and hopefully that will be the final piece of the jigsaw, to be a Grand Final winner.
"We have been building towards this for a number of years. We have had success in the Challenge Cup and have finished as league leaders without actually winning the Grand Finals.
"We have not ticked that box but we are quite confident we can compete on Saturday and hopefully go all the way."
"I am very proud of my Warrington career and the icing on the cake would be a victory on Saturday."
Wigan superstar Sam Tomkins will also be playing his final game for his club before leaving to play for New Zealand Warriors in NRL and Morley, who represented Sydney Roosters between 2001 and 2006, is happy to offer some advice to him - after Saturday's showdown.
"I have not spoken to him because we have got this game coming up but after the game I will have a chat with Sam," he added.
"I am really pleased and it will be a great life experience to play in the NRL. There are a number of English players over there and I am very proud of them.
"I loved every minute of it and I am sure Sam will."
