PRESENTER Emma Louise Jones bid an emotional farewell to fans during her final TV appearance hosting Championship Rugby League.
Jones spent the last two years hosting the rugby show for Viaplay Sports UK but the show has now ended.
She posted on Instagram: "I’ve enjoyed every Monday night game for the last 2 years – even when it’s been snowing or I’ve been getting blown around everywhere.
"Thank you to the special friends I’ve made whilst presenting alongside them, and thank you to every Rugby League fan for welcoming me with open arms and allowing me to have the best job in the world.
"P.s I made the lads try snails because the Championship Grand Final was in France but we were broadcasting from Dublin, so I felt they should try some French cuisine to feel a little closer to the action."
Jones – who also presents football for the BBC – will clearly be a miss amongst rugby league fans.
