It’s time for you to vote for your March Player of the Month…
The Betfred Super League campaign is now well underway, and Salford Red Devils sit fifth in the table after six intense rounds of rugby league.
March kicked-off with a tough trip to table-toppers Warrington Wolves, where Paul Rowley’s side were looking to bounce back from defeat to Hull KR, a week prior.
Despite leading 6-20 at half-time – including a stunning solo try by Ryan Brierley – the hosts seized momentum in the second-half and turned the game around to win 36-20.
The Red Devils bounced back in style in their next outing; completely putting Hull FC to the sword at the MKM with some scintillating attacking play.
That 14-60 win was backed-up by another nervy, but nonetheless two points at home to struggling Wakefield Trinity. Marc Sneyd’s drop-goal in golden point secured the 14-13 victory.
The final game this month was a trip to face Matt Peet’s Wigan Warriors. Two late tries were the difference, with Bevan French proving the difference in a 20-16 win for the hosts.
Four players stood out above the rest in this month.
Tyler Dupree has been in flying form so far this season. The prop – at just 23 years of age – is showing maturity beyond his years and his performances the month hands him a well-deserved back-to-back Player of the Month nominations to kick-off 2023.
The next nominee was our golden point hero, Marc Sneyd. Our number seven kicked his 1,000th career goal against his old club, Hull FC and has been pivotal in our three, early-season victories.
As has Ryan Brierley – our next nominee. Scoring tries in two of the matches and assisting in the two others, he has consistently proven himself as one of the best support players in Super League.
The final nominee is our captain, Kallum Watkins. Continuing his incredible run in the second-row, Watkins has played long and tiring minutes this month, but he continues to produce the mixture of hard-work and quality that makes him the world class player he is.
So… who gets your vote? Let us know by voting in the poll below!
Two tries in the last 15 minutes earned Wigan Warriors a late victory against Paul Rowley’s hard-working Salford Red Devils side.
It was a great spectacle for everyone inside the DW, but the Red Devils were on top for large periods of the game and will ultimately go home thinking what could have been.
Salford showed their intent from the off and completed a fantastic first defensive set.
However, a knock-on from Sam Stone gifted Wigan possession and Adam Sidlow’s high shot on the next play gave Harry Smith the easy task of opening the scoring with a penalty-goal.
In quite unusual circumstances, there were four ball steals in the opening half-hour and the arm-wrestle for field position was fierce.
Jake Wardle tried to crash over on the left, but five Salford bodies kept him up. That turnover turned out to be a pivotal point in the first-half, with the Red Devils making valuable metres downfield and forcing a drop-out on the last.
From the restart, Brodie Croft spread the ball right and sent Ryan Brierley towards the Wigan line. Off balance, our number one sent a lovely, disguised kick into the right corner for Ken Sio to gather and slide over. Marc Sneyd added the extras.
It wasn’t long until the hosts responded through Bevan French. The winger collected a low pass and handed off two Salford defenders on the right, jinxed past his marker and strolled under the sticks.
Sneyd was able to level the scores just before the break via a penalty-goal and bring to an end a pulsating first period.
HALF-TIME: Wigan Warriors 8-8 Salford Red Devils
The Reds were penalised on three separate occasions during the first few sets of the second forty, but a huge defensive effort kept Wigan out and brought rewards down the other end of the field.
Sio was the man to go over again for Salford, but it was the genius of Brodie Croft that made it happen. Burgess was almost in on the left, but a quick play-the-ball allowed us to go coast-to-coast and our number six sent the winger in with a beautiful high pass.
Sneyd extended the lead to eight, minutes later. Chris Atkin was hit late on the last and our number seven sent the penalty-goal over from around 35 metres out.
Salford were working hard in defence to try and keep Wigan at bay, but you could sense the tide was turning as the Red Devils tired, and the hosts firmly took advantage.
Much like his first of the game, French finished off a quick Cherry and Whites move by skipping through a wide-open gap in the Salford line and sliding over in the left corner.
With just two points in it, Salford were pinned on our own try-line and quick passing from the hosts carved the defence open once again.
Toby King was the scorer this time and Harry Smith’s conversion all-but confirmed the victory, with Salford’s hard-work in the last ten coming without any reward.
FULL-TIME: Wigan Warriors 20-16 Salford Red Devils
Paul Rowley’s Salford Red Devils are looking to make it three consecutive Betfred Super League victories when they take on Wigan Warriors at the DW Stadium.
They arrive at Round 6 in fourth place, after three wins and two losses to kickstart the campaign. Our opponents boast the exact same record, but sit slightly higher than the Red Devils on points difference.
The latest Salford victory came in quite dramatic fashion. Taking on Wakefield Trinity last Sunday, the two sides were locked at 13 points a piece after 80 minutes and the game was forced into golden point.
With both sharpshooters, Mason Lino and Marc Sneyd both trading drop-goal attempts, it was the latter who saw one sail over the sticks on the 85th minute to send the Salford faithful home happy.
Attentions have firmly switched to Matt Peet’s Wigan, who possess some potent weapons in the form of Jai Field, Bevan French and Liam Marshall.
Rowley and his squad will want to show the grit, determination and flair which has seen them come through these tough encounters before; so, here’s everything you need to know around this one:
There were two pieces of positive squad news for the Red Devils this week.
Tim Lafai – who missed Round 5 with a hamstring strain – has returned to the squad alongside left-edge partner, Joe Burgess.
The 28-year-old winger has been missing for the last fortnight with a shoulder injury, but the original prognosis of a long-term spell on the sidelines was not as bad as first feared and he’s back in the fold for Friday’s game.
We will, however, be without Andy Ackers, who is carrying a knee injury.
The hooker will miss today’s game a likely next week against Huddersfield Giants, but Paul Rowley told the press on Wednesday he will be back with the team in no longer than two weeks’ time.
Looking ahead to our Round 6 clash, Head Coach, Paul Rowley was quick to point out the threats Wigan possess and where they could hurt his side.
He began: “I think I’ve said before, I expect the same from Wigan as they’ve probably delivered since I started watching them in 1980.
“You go there and it’s tough. Wigan kids are brought up with a rugby ball in their hand, they know the game inside-out and they’re a tough bunch as well.
“They’ll be no quarter given. Anything you get at Wigan you’ve earned,” Rowley continued.
“But you can’t run away from it; you’ve got to run into the fire so to speak and get excited, and look forward to the challenge ahead because they’ll challenge us physically – we know that.
“Previous experience says they’ll come and challenge us up the middle, but on the back of quick rucks they’ve got the X-Factor out-wide in the back three of French, Field and Marshall – who I do feel doesn’t get mentioned enough, he’s been one of Wigan’s best now for over a year or so.”

Marc Sneyd’s drop-goal in the fifth minute of golden point secured back-to-back victories Salford Red Devils in the Betfred Super League.
Round 5 presented Paul Rowley’s side with a very stubborn Wakefield Trinity side – desperate to get their first points of the season. It was an error-filled game, packed with tension, but a moment of pure quality from our number seven was the difference in the end.
Before the game, Salford were hit with yet another injury blow in the form of Tim Lafai, but it was his replacement who opened the scoring on four minutes.
Ryan Brierley teased the Wakefield defence and released his pass at just the right time for Matt Costello to receive and stroll over for his first of the season.
Trinity hadn’t scored a point in three successive matches, but they broke their duck when Corey Hall supported Jorge Taufua’s break down the left edge to stretch over.
A nip-and-tuck next 20 minutes ended with Wakefield taking the lead. A high kick on the last was not dealt with in the right corner and Reece Lyne plucked the ball out of the sky to score.
Salford were struggling to get the game under control, but a strong tackle from Danny Addy forced a knock-on and the Red Devils had a scrum 20 metres out.
Wakefield conceded six-again after six-again and finally the pressure told – with Chris Atkin powering past his man on the left to hand us the lead just before the interval.
HALF-TIME: Salford Red Devils 12-10 Wakefield Trinity
The start to the second-half was much like the first – very scrappy.
Both sides were conceding errors and no-one could gain much territory. Rhys Williams almost made a breakthrough on the hour mark, with some neat work from the scrum, but the Welsh winger knocked-on when attempting to slide over in the left corner.
Salford’s slender lead didn’t last much longer, with Mason Lino slotting away a penalty-goal when the hosts were penalised just 25 metres out.
The two sharpshooters – Sneyd and Lino – then exchanged drop-goals in the last five minutes, with the full-time hooter signalling our first golden point of the season.
FULL-TIME: Salford Red Devils 13-13 Wakefield Trinty
Wakefield started with the ball, but the Red Devils soon had it back and who else but Marc Sneyd was on-hand to secure his team two vital competition points with a pinpoint drop-goal.
GOLDEN POINT: Salford Red Devils 14-13 Wakefield Trinity
