MATCH PREVIEW – CASTLEFORD TIGERS VS SALFORD RED DEVILS (ROUND 7)

by | Apr 4, 2024

The Red Devils travel to the Jungle in Round 7.

Four wins from six to start 2024 means Paul Rowley’s side sit in a healthy position ahead of a crucial run of Betfred Super League fixtures.

Last week’s victory was an impressive Rivals Round showing against Leigh Leopards, with Ryan Brierley starring on his 300th career appearance.

Ethan Ryan also notched his first two for the club and Marc Sneyd picked up yet another Man of the Match medal.

Next up are Castleford Tigers, a team who sit without a point so far this season, but have shown plenty of positives in their last few games.

In their last outing, some resolute defending from Leeds Rhinos kept out a barrage of Tigers’ attacking sets, before the the visitors took over in the second 40.

As we travel to West Yorkshire, here’s everything you need to know:


SQUAD NEWS

There’s only one change to last week’s 21-man squad.

Kai Morgan drops out and will spend the next two weeks on loan at Rochdale Hornets, gaining some valuable game time in a competitive environment.

Supporters will be happy to see Nene Macdonald’s inclusion. The PNG international limped off last Saturday with a knee problem, but is named amongst the travelling party this Friday.


LAST TIME OUT

The Red Devils were at their stunning best the last time we travelled to West Yorkshire.

Coming into the contest looking to move joint top of the table, Salford’s attacking prowess was on full display, tearing the Tigers apart on multiple occasions throughout the 80 minutes.

Rhys Williams and Chris Atkin were on the board early on for Salford, with Deon Cross also scoring a sublime try when he stepped Gareth Widdop to go over.

Cas cut the deficit just before the break, but further efforts from Ken Sio, Tim Lafai, Sam Stone, and another from Williams in the second forty secured another big two points.
