Salford Red Devils and St Helens players will experience agame like no other if they participate in this years Grand Final, states eight-time winner Rob Burrow.
St Helens will soon be appearing in their first final for 5 decades while Salford will make their Grand Final introduction at Old Trafford on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.
Former Leeds Rhinos participant Burrow told Sky Sports News:Both teams are playing well but the Grand Final is a sport like no other. The intensity rises massively.
The back of the group must play well and its about finding a performance that you have not found annually. The strength is it hits you in the face.
You have got to earn a mark on the game fairly early because the closing only seems to pass you . 1 minute theres five seconds on the clock, the second it is 65.
They move by so quickly so I would say get in the game early and make your stamp.
Salford come into the Grand Final since underdogs but have Person of Steel Jackson Hastings in their ranks, and Burrow says:Theyve been really good all year and have gone under the radar due to large pieces. They are rightly so and taking the plaudits.
[Head coach] Ian Watson has done a terrific job there and that he talks about group unity – that is strong going into large games.
Salford rightly deserve to be there and I think everyone is pleased that somebody else new has come
St Helens finished 18 points clear of Salford from the Super League table, also Burrow states theyll be confident of winning their Grand Final.
You have got a group that is not missing confidence in big games, he said. St Helens are a team thats synonymous with success and they have been brilliant from one.
They will probably be let down with their Challenge Cup final defeat [to Warrington] but theyve moved on and place in a good performance against Wigan a few months ago.
St Helens should be confident, they have been fantastic all year.
