Jake Shorrocks will relive the moment he thought his world had come crashing down when he runs out for the Super League Grand Final on Saturday. Chad Henne Chiefs Jersey . The 20-year-old half-backs first close-up experience of Old Trafford was almost shattered by a prank by Wigan and England full-back Sam Tomkins.In 2010 I was a ball boy with my mate Nick Gregson, who has also played a few games for the first team, and I was stood in the tunnel while all the players walk past and Sam Tomkins knocked the ball out of my hands, Shorrocks recalled. It went rolling down the tunnel. I thought I was going to get shouted at. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Shorrocks survived the experience and, six years on, he will get the chance to run out onto the big stage as one of a host of youthful replacements for Wigans injured stars, Tomkins among them, as the Warriors take on Warrington in the title decider.Shorrocks has witnessed all nine previous Grand Finals featuring his home-town club but he was watching in a knee brace 12 months ago after suffering a cruel injury blow playing for the academy.I had a partial tear in my ACL and also did my meniscus so I did a full job, he said. When I got told how serious it was, I was absolutely devastated. But it stood me in good stead. Phil Clarke previews Saturdays Grand Final Tomkins was at the youngsters side throughout his lengthy rehabilitation as he recovered from a similar injury and the pair eventually became team-mates.Shorrocks made his Super League debut at Widnes in May as a replacement for stand-off George Williams and, after playing in 11 of Wigans last 13 matches of the season, providing back-up for hooker Sam Powell, has forced his way into coach Shaun Wanes team for Old Trafford. I only made my debut in May and, if someone had told me Id be playing in the Grand Final at the end of the year, Id have snatched their hands off, he said.My main aim at the start of the year was to get myself fit and hopefully make my debut and play a few games. I didnt expect to be up for selection for the Grand Final.Im coming off the bench and playing okay at the moment. Waney is happy to put me there and Im happy to play there. Ive only ever played hooker at Super League level, not even academy or reserve grade, but Shauns helped me out a lot and so too has Sam Powell.

"The scouts were happy," general manager Bryan Murray said. "I think somebody shook my hand at the end." That wasnt the handshake Murray went into the weekend hoping for. And try as he did, he was unable to consummate a trade to give centre Jason Spezza his wish to leave Ottawa. "I called the teams or took calls from teams that were interested," Murray said Saturday. "We talked about the return, the type of deal we wanted to make. In a couple of cases there was real interest and it went away. So I dont know whether it was because of the draft and on the day of the draft picks are very valuable, whether that was part of it or it was something different." Murray wanted a first-round pick, a roster player and a prospect for his captain, who has a limited no-trade clause and thus the power to refuse to go to 10 teams. One of those 10 is Nashville, which had a deal worked out to get Spezza that couldnt go through because he didnt agree to go to the Predators. "David (Poile) talked to me and we couldnt go there," Murray said. "I told (Spezzas agent) Rick Curran that today, I had a deal sitting there if I wanted to do it, but he was on the list of no-gos." A Senators-Predators deal mightve landed Ottawa the 11th pick. Instead, Poile pulled the trigger on getting winger James Neal from the Pittsburgh Penguins for Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling. Considering that and the Anaheim Ducks trade with the Vancouver Canucks for centre Ryan Kesler, Murray knnows that "the field narrows a little bit. David Amerson Chiefs Jersey. ." Murray estimated that he talked to four or five teams about Spezza and that three expressed fairly serious interest. It never worked out, leaving everyone in the situation still hanging. “Im sure its disappointing for him, its disappointing for me because Id like to accommodate him if I could, but he does have a year left on his contract," Murray said. "If thats the case well have a pretty good player for next year." Or its possible that teams circle back to the Senators after July 1 if they dont land Paul Stastny or another free-agent centre. As far as Ottawas approach to the start of free agency, thats affected by Spezza, too. "I dont know, thats the problem," Murray said. "Part of your decision is what can you spend, where does it fit and what do you get in return for a certain player? If you dont know that, then its harder." Unable to get anything done on the Spezza front, the Senators made five picks to stock up for the future. They took defenceman Andreas Englund 40th, defenceman Miles Gendron 70th, forward Shane Eiserman 100th, defenceman Kelly Summers 189th and left-winger Francis Perron 190th. The 189th pick, a seventh-rounder, Ottawa got from the Winnipeg Jets for a 2015 sixth-rounder. That was the only trade Murray was able to make in Philadelphia. "It just seemed to me there were a lot of phone calls, a lot of talking, people interested, but nothing really happened," he said. "I had to make one trade at the end, a seventh-round pick for the sixth next year just to say I did something. So that was my accomplishment."
