MATCH REPORT | WIGAN WARRIORS 16-6 SALFORD RED DEVILS | FRIDAY 6TH AUGUST 2021

Despite leading at the interval and going toe to toe for the majority of the game, Salford Red Devils fell to a 16-6 defeat against Wigan Warriors tonight at the DW Stadium.

The hosts only pipped Salford by one in terms of number of tries scored but it was three penalty goals due to poor discipline that arguably cost Salford the game.

Wigan went over first after 13 minutes through Sam Halsall, who dived over in the right corner.

Salford born Ellis Robson, who is currently on loan from Warrington Wolves, came on just before the 20-minute mark to make his Red Devils debut, five minutes before Marshall’s men got themselves on the scoreboard.

Fast hands down the line from right to left opened up a gap in the left corner for former Wigan man, Joe Burgess, to dive over acrobatically.

In the 32nd minute, an altercation between Josh Johnson and Morgan Smithies saw both sides lose a player to the sin bin, with both men not returning until two minutes into the second forty.

Just before the hooter to signal halftime, Salford were awarded a penalty 30 metres out and opted for the two. Harvey Livett converted and the Red Devils went into the break with a slight lead.

Halftime: Wigan Warriors 4-6 Salford Red Devils

The second forty saw Wigan awarded three penalties, opting for the two each time, with Harry Smith converting all three.

The latter of the Wigan penalty goals involved Ata Hingano seeing yellow after a high tackle on Jackson Hastings in front of Salford’s sticks with 17 minutes to go.

John Bateman sealed the victory for Wigan in the 68th minute, powering over to the left of the sticks to ensure his side finished the game as victors.

MATCH REPORT | LEEDS RHINOS 38-16 SALFORD RED DEVILS | FRIDAY 23RD JULY 2021

Despite a positive end to the game for Marshall’s men, Salford Red Devils fell to a 38-16 defeat away to Leeds Rhinos tonight in Round 15 of the Betfred Super League.

Three tries in the first forty from the hosts made it 20-0 at the break, and although the Red Devils responded in the second half, they could not quite hold off the Leeds attack.

Harry Newman was first on the scoreboard after seven minutes, going over in the left corner after some quick hands from Leeds’ left edge.

The hosts exploited Salford’s right edge again minutes later but this time it was Kruise Leeming who grounded the ball down the left.

Leeds received a penalty in the 23rd minute after Seb Ikahihifo was penalised for a dangerous tackle, and the Rhinos opted for the two – Rhyse Martin converting.

Leeming doubled his try tally just after the half-hour mark, strolling over behind the sticks.

Halftime: Leeds Rhinos 20-0 Salford Red Devils

Salford started the second forty a lot better than they started the first, getting themselves on the scoreboard in the 47th minute after Morgan Escare fed Ken Sio to dive over down the right wing.

Minutes later, poor discipline punished Salford again after Lolohea and Ikahihifo both were sin-binned.

The next ten minutes saw Callum Mclelland and King Vuniyayawa score for Leeds, before the Red Devils were back on the scoreboard once more.

Sio ran almost the entire length of the field but a pursuing wave of Leeds players meant he was forced to kick the ball into the direction of Lolohea, who was first to the loose ball to go over in the right corner.

Leeds captain Matt Prior scurried over the line to the left of the sticks in the 74th minute but it was Salford who scored the last try of the evening, Inu powering over. Richard Myler saw yellow with three minutes to go, but he and his teammates took the two points at the final hooter.

Fulltime: Leeds Rhinos 20-0 Salford Red Devils

Leeds Rhinos: Myler, Briscoe, Hurrell, Newman, Handley, Sutcliffe, Mclelland, Prior, Leeming, Vuniyayawa, Mellor, Martin, O’Connor, Dwyer, Briscoe, Donaldson, Smith, Agar.

Leeds tries: Newman, Leeming (2), Mclelland, Vuniyayawa, Prior

Leeds goals: Martin (6/7)

  • Please vaccinate where possible to maximise protection to fellow supporters and members of staff.  Vaccination remains a key priority in the response to the pandemic.
  • Use the Government’s offer of free lateral flow tests; consider taking one before you travel.
  • If travelling via public transport, please adhere to the relevant guidance.
  • Respect the rules of the venue you are attending and check in advance to see what is required.
  • Wear face coverings in busy indoor areas
  • Ensure you are familiar with social distancing restrictions where these apply
  • Treat stewards with respect and respond to their requests.
  • Do not attend if you have symptoms or are in any doubt about your health.

Rugby league fans urged to follow the Wembley template

Today’s fourth step in the UK Government’s Covid roadmap allows for venues returning to full capacity, with no social distancing. 

That means another significant step back to normality for rugby league clubs and fans in this week’s fixtures, starting with the Betfred Women’s Super League match between York City Knights and Wigan Warriors at Odsal tonight – and continuing through the Betfred Super League, Championship, League 1 and the Community Game. 

Throughout the pandemic, the RFL has been working closely with Government and with clubs and other stakeholders – and that has continued in the preparations for Stage 4. 

Karen Moorhouse, the RFL’s Chief Regulatory Officer, said: This week is another big step back to normality for our clubs and fans, and it comes at a positive time for the sport as we reflect on the success of the weekend at Wembley. 

“We have been grateful since the limited return of fans to grounds in recent weeks for the way our clubs and fans have worked together in a responsible manner, and the weekend was a great example of that. 

“To be included in the Government’s Events Research Programme allowed us to welcome a much higher crowd to Wembley than would otherwise have been the case, and the supporters of the four clubs involved – Castleford Tigers, Featherstone Rovers, St Helens and York City Knights – as well as the thousands of neutrals who attend our Challenge Cup Final weekend were a credit to the game. 

“This year that involved providing evidence of either a negative Covid-19 test or of having had a double vaccination to gain entry to the stadium – and while that won’t be required to attend regular league matches this week now we have reached Stage 4, we would still encourage supporters to bear in mind Government guidance where possible. 

“The Government refers to Stage 4 as ‘a new phase of continued caution whilst managing the risks of COVID-19’. We all owe it to each other to be as safe and responsible as possible to restrict the spread of the virus. 

“The same applies to all involved in the Community Game, whether as players or spectators. Again, Stage 4 of the Roadmap involves the removal of a number of restrictions – and again, we are urging clubs and players to implement these changes cautiously and responsibly.” 

Rugby League is joining other sports in requesting supporters to bear the following in mind before attending games: 

·       Do not attend if you have symptoms or are in any doubt about your health. 

·       Please vaccinate where possible to maximise protection to fellow supporters and members of staff.  Vaccination remains a key priority in the response to the pandemic. 

·       Use the Government’s offer of free lateral flow tests; consider taking one before you travel. 

·       If travelling via public transport, please adhere to the relevant guidance. 

·       Respect the rules of the venue you are attending and check in advance to see what is required. 

·       Wear face coverings in busy indoor areas  

·       Ensure you are familiar with social distancing restrictions where these apply  

·       Treat stewards with respect and respond to their requests. 

The RFL is continuing to work with clubs to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for all. 

Salford Red Devils’ next home game comes on Thursday 29 July, when we welcome Hull Kingston Rovers to the The Salford Stadium.

MATCH REPORT | SALFORD RED DEVILS 24-14 WAKEFIELD TRINITY | FRIDAY 16TH JULY 2021

Salford Red Devils came from behind twice to beat Wakefield Trinity 24-14 in their rescheduled Round 12 fixture at the Halliwell Jones Stadium tonight.

Although it was Salford who started arguably the stronger of the two sides, it was Wakefield who took the lead just before the ten-minute mark through Innes Senior, who used his pace to dart over down the left.

Just over five minutes later, Trinity extended their lead down the right thanks to Reece Lyne, who powered through the Salford defence to ground the ball.

Halfway into the first forty, Morgan Escare used his quick feet once again to dance through the Wakefield defence and scurry over down the right to pick up his fourth try in three games.

In the 33rd minute, Krisnan Inu showed why his return to the side was so important, when he weaved through several blue shirts to go over to the right of the sticks and even the scoring, after converting his own try.

Marshall’s men did well to hold on as the interval approached, defending multiple sets on virtually their own try line to ensure it was all to play for in the second forty.

Halftime: Salford Red Devils 12-12 Wakefield Trinity

Wakefield came out looking the most threatening in the early stages of the second forty, but Salford’s defensive line stayed strong.

However, Trinity were gifted a penalty in front of the sticks just before the hour mark, and opted to take the two. Mason Lino converted and Salford were behind again, albeit by the narrowest of margins.

It did not take long though for the Red Devils to take back control of the arm wrestle and it was our number 4 again who went over. Pauli Pauli used his strength to brush off a number of Wakefield players, before offloading to Inu who grounded the ball in the right corner.

Two minutes later, Inu added another two via a penalty goal, after Wakefield were penalised for a high tackle.

With nine minutes to go, Man of the Match Ken Sio put the game to bed with a try of his own, diving into the right corner to make it two wins in a row for Marshall’s men.

Fulltime: Salford Red Devils 24-14 Wakefield Trinity

Salford Red Devils: Escare. Sio, Inu, Costello, Williams, Lolohea, Atkin, Johnson, Ackers, Ormondroyd, Livett, Lannon, Burke, Roberts, Ikahihifo, Pauli, Luckley.

MATCH REPORT | CASTLEFORD TIGERS 18-70 SALFORD RED DEVILS | SUNDAY 11TH JULY 2021

Salford Red Devils picked up a comfortable win against Castleford Tigers at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle this afternoon, after what has been a difficult two weeks in the Salford camp.

Despite the scoreline, it was the hosts who took the lead early on through Grant Milligan, after the Tigers reacted first to a loose ball.

Jack Ormondroyd powered over in the 12th minute however, to put Salford on the scoreboard.

Ollie Roberts put Salford ahead for the first time shortly before the half-hour mark and two minutes later, Morgan Escare danced his way through the Castleford defence to pick up a try of his own.

Three minutes from the interval, Rhys Williams picked a Chris Atkin kick out of the sky and grounded the ball in the left corner.

Halftime: Castleford Tigers 6-22 Salford Red Devils

The hosts started the second forty the same way they did the first, scoring early through Brad Martin this time.

However, the second half at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle belonged to Salford, who took real control of the arm wrestle.

Ken Sio darted over down the right in the 47th minute, before Escare got his second of the afternoon five minutes later after some great play from Salford to work the ball from left to right.

Dec Patton then barged over for a try, before Matt Costello grounded the ball in the 59th minute after a great kick chase by the number 24.

Man of the Match Chris Atkin strolled over under the sticks five minutes later and the hosts responded with their last try of the game through Alex Foster.

Saints loanees Ben Davies and Dan Norman both helped to extend Salford’s lead in the last few minutes and it was our Welsh Winger Williams who summed up what had been a brilliant display, breaking the Castleford line and picking up his second try of the afternoon between the sticks.
