SAINTS skipper James Roby says the team have added motivation ahead of Saturday night's Grand Final - to send Justin Holbrook on his way to the NRL with a Grand Final win.

If that happens Holbrook, who joins Gold Coast Titans, will follow in the footsteps of Nathan Brown who signed off with an Old Trafford win in 2014.

Roby, who will be playing in his eighth Grand Final, said: "Justin leaving adds another motivation for us.

"What he's done for us as a club and the town in general over the last two-and-a-half years has been fantastic and there would be nothing more fitting in my eyes than to send him off a winner.

"But we've got Salford in front of us who are a quality team.

"They're playing well and they deserve to be where they are."
