DEON CROSS’ HISTORIC TRY WINS MARCH TRY OF THE MONTH

by | Apr 11, 2024

Of course it had to be this one!

Deon Cross’ 75th minute winner against St Helens has been voted March’s Try of the Month.

On a memorable night at the Totally Wicked Stadium, where we secured our first win at Saints in over 44 years, Cross’ effort completed a quick-fire comeback.

The winger was already on the scoresheet when he received Ryan Brierley’s cut-out ball midway through the first-half to go over, but the hosts, at that point, were still in full control.

Mark Percival was sent off for Saints during the second forty and Salford took full advantage in six crazy minutes.

First Nene Macdonald, then Chris Atkin – another contender for this award – cut the deficit, before a moment of pure genius won the game.

Tim Lafai received a pass from Marc Sneyd in one hand, before moving it into his other for a trademark out-the-back flick to Cross, who scampered past Jack Welsby into the corner.
