Jones: 2016 finish was one to forget

Salford forward Josh Jones has emphasized the desire to avoid the way last season finished for the Super League club.

The Red Devils were minutes away from relegation to the Championship, before coming from behind to beat Hull KR in dramatic fashion in the Million Pound Game.

“We’ll be making sure that won’t be happening again,” Jones told Love Rugby League.

“It was such a dramatic and late drama.

“Last year’s gone now and luckily we’re still in Super League.”

The 23-year old is currently nursing a broken hand after being injured in Salford’s friendly win over Rochdale.

Jones believes there is potential for Salford to challenge right at the very top of Super League in 2017.

“I think you can see from last year with the football that we played we have definitely got the talent to beat anyone on our day,” the former St Helens forward said.

“I think it’s just about getting more consistency in our game.”

There were reports that Salford owner Marwan Koukash was set to leave the club last year, but he decided to stay.

Jone said that was a massive relief.

“It’s great and we are grateful that he’s staying,” he said.

“At the end of the day he finances the club and he’s a nice fella.

“He’s a bit emotional with his actions sometimes but that’s just him.”
