Amir Bourouh says Salford Red Devils are expecting a desperate Wakefield Trinity side and states the team need to be at their best if they want the win. 

Bourouh, who joined around this time last season, spoke to us before a Round 17 clash against Wakefield Trinity.

“We are expecting a team who are going to come out, desperate for a win, we need to be the best versions of ourselves if we want to get the win,” he said.

Bourouh arrived at the Red Devils from Wigan Warriors in 2022.

He has developed his skills over the past 12 months and is becoming a key player in the squad.

He says he’s still got a lot of work to do but he’s been getting better every game. 

“I think I’ve come on a lot and Krissy (Inu) has been working a lot with me during pre-season,” he continued.

The youngster says he has started to feel more like a hooker lately and has been learning with regular first-teamer Andy Ackers – someone who has been at the top for a while and been in the England camp at last summer’s World Cup.

With Ackers out injured after consecutive failed HIA assessment’s, Bourouh is hopeful he can get in the team this week after going in and out on loan during the year to both Swinton and Barrow, where he enjoyed successful spells.

Wakefield were winless for almost the entire first-half of the season; however, a recent win against Leeds has certainly boosted their Betfred Super League survival hopes.

Being at home this week – where they defeated the Rhinos 24-14 – should be a big confidence for the side sat rock bottom of the table.

Bourouh stated that the home side will show that they are desperate for the two points and that Salford need to be at their very best if they want to stop that from happening.
