A lot has changed for Josh Jones since his last appearance in the Super League Grand Final.
It is five years since he was part of the St Helens team which defeated Wigan Warriors 14-6 at Old Trafford, the club he will now line up against when current side Salford Red Devils step out onto the pitch.
Jones feels older and wiser too, not to mention having had a brief spell playing rugby union for Exeter Chiefs, but the biggest change has been shifting from the backs to the forwards.

“Since then, I’ve got into it and luckily I’ve had a great year this year – and hopefully it’s not finished yet.
