MATCH PREVIEW – SALFORD RED DEVILS VS HULL FC (ROUND 16)

MATCH PREVIEW – SALFORD RED DEVILS VS HULL FC (ROUND 16)

by | Jul 6, 2024

Back in action and back for good as the final stretch of Betfred Super League fixtures gets underway.

The first of 12 regular season tests for Salford Red Devils comes on Sunday, as Hull FC roll into town for our first meeting between the two sides in 2024.

Parting with their Head Coach and some poor early-season form sees the Black & White’s sat in 11th place, with just four points on the board.

However, a young, hungry squad will be nothing but a tough battle for Paul Rowley’s men, who are firmly focused on the task at hand.

Here’s everything you need to know before another huge game:


HOW TO BUY TICKETS

SQUAD NEWS

Seeing the name Ryan Brierley on the squad list will be a welcome boost to supporters.

Our star fullback has been struggling with a rib issue since our victory over London Broncos, but has recovered in time to face the Black & White’s this weekend.

However, there are injury issues for our in-form centre combination, Nene Macdonald and Tim Lafai, who both miss out on Sunday’s clash.

There is also a spot in the squad for Jamie Pye. The prop forward has been training with Paul Rowley’s first grade squad all year, but has also spent time in the Reserves set-up.


LAST TIME OUT

As mentioned previously, this will actually be the first meeting between these two sides in 2024.

Last year, facing the Black & White’s proved very fruitful for Paul Rowley’s men, picking up a huge victory at the MKM before backing that up with a nervy, but crucial home victory.

At the Salford Community Stadium, Jake Clifford gave FC an early lead before Tyler Dupree powered over to level the scores.

Jake Trueman skipped beyond the line to restore Hull’s advantage, but Deon Cross’ effort and another superb try from a scrum on halfway tipped the balance back in Salford’s favour.

Winger, Darnell McIntosh closed the gap, but victory was secured with Sneyd – against his former club – scoring a try and sinking a drop-goal either side of Ken Sio’s acrobatic effort.
