Salford Red Devils head coach Ian Watson praised the club’s medical and conditioning staff, following his side’s win against Leeds Rhinos at the The Salford Stadium on Friday night.
The 28-16 victory over the Rhinos was the Red Devils’ third in a two week period where they played four Betfred Super League matches.
Watson said: “They’ve been well managed, the players. Our medical team have been outstanding and our strength and conditioning team have been brilliant.
“They’ve been first class with what we’ve been allowed to do on and off the field and the way we’ve been recovering the last couple of weeks.”
He added: “We’ve had people with tight hamstrings after the back of the Easter period and normally it’s this game where you pick up a few more.
“But today, touch wood so far, we’ve not come out with anything, which hopefully puts us in a good position going forward into the Challenge Cup.”


The result saw Salford make a return to winning ways at home in front of a vocal 3,368 supporters, and move up to sixth in the table.
Watson said: “We’ve got a loud support base and they do really well for us, but with the team we’ve got now, I’d like us to be getting 7000 in every single week and being able to really build on this team.
“Because this team could be a top team for a few years, because it’s a young team as well.”
Salford will hope to be cheered to another victory, in their Coral Challenge Cup tie against Hull KR at the The Salford Stadium next Saturday.
