I will miss Knowsley Road - Long

Sean Long
Long has been at St Helens for 12 years

St Helens scrum-half Sean Long has said his final appearance at Knowsley Road was an emotional experience.

Long scored a try and set up another for Francis Meli in Saints' 14-10 win over Wigan to progress to the Grand Final against Leeds on Saturday.

That will be Long's last game for St Helens before a move to Hull FC.

"I had a tear in my eye at the end. I've had some great moments here so to finish with a win is great," Long told the Super League Show.

Long added: "I'll miss this old ground, it's been very good to me. Twelve years is a long time.

"I really enjoyed the game and it was emotional to play in.

"I felt like I held it together well and the boys did brilliantly to win this game."
