MATCH PREVIEW – HULL KR VS SALFORD RED DEVILS (BETFRED SUPER LEAGUE ROUND 26)

by | Sep 16, 2023

How’s the nerves?

After last weekends’ nail-biting, thrilling finale, Paul Rowley’s side have to do it all over again when they make the long journey to East Hull this evening.

Sam Stone’s golden point winner has kept our playoff hopes alive, but only a victory tonight will keep us in the hunt, with just two games remaining.

The Robins sit just two points above us going into the fixture and will be buoyed the fact they can secure their top six spot with two more points.

Earlier this season, a red-hot Ryan Brierley was the catalyst for a stunning Magic Weekend victory over Willie Peters’ side – opening the festival of rugby league in style.

Ahead a HUGE clash, here’s everything you need to know.


SQUAD NEWS

Suspensions have been the talk of the town in the past 14 days, but the Red Devils are certainly boosted by the returns of Kallum Watkins and Oliver Partington.

However, as two come back into the fold, one drops out, with the impressive Brad Singleton set to serve his one-match suspension for a Grade B ‘High Tackle’.

Shane Wright and Alex Gerrard remain long-term absentees.


INU’S PREVIEW

Ahead of this one, Inu was quick to praise the boys’ discipline in a crazy golden point period. He said to keep their cool and score a stunning try is a testament to the trust and belief they have in the process.

“The boys were disciplined enough to not shy away,” he began.

“Obviously, in golden point anything goes and whether it is a field goal, penalty or a try, just to win by any means.

“But for them to not shy away from what they’ll good at and believe in the plan that was put in front of them – and to execute is another thing.

“To finish the way they did speaks wonders for them and how they trust the process.”
