JOHNNY Vegas' jubilant reaction to Saints' last-gasp Grand Final victory reflected the emotions of many of the team's supporters.

With no fans allowed at the final, people were glued to television screens watching one of the most absorbing and tense final's in the sport's history.

A video shows Vegas, at his London base, watching as the game's dramatic final moments unfold.

With the clock ticking down, and the score tied at 4-4, Wigan's Zak Hardaker had a long distance penalty goal attempt that fell just short.

Saints drove back up field and Tommy Makinson struck a drop goal attempt that agonisingly hit an upright.

But as the ball deflected off the post it then took a wicked bounce back into the in goal area.

Wigan full back Bevan French followed the ball as he attempted to clear up, but chasing down was 19-year-old Saints centre Jack Welsby, who won the race and touched down.

His effort sent the Saints players on the pitch and the fans back at their homes - including Vegas - into raptures.

But even then there was more tension, more drama as the try was referred to the video referee to check if Welsby was onside when the ball struck Makinson's boot.

He was and the try was awarded - sparking scenes of jubilation.
