This invaluable procedure will allow the mother to see her children for the first time.

After the excitement of several recent games, Salford supporters must surely be becoming used to being kept on the edge of their seats with the closely run encounters that have become almost regular occurrences, at least at the Salford Stadium.

From the Golden Point extra time victory over Wakefield, back in March, to last week’s progression to the next round of the Challenge Cup at the expense of Huddersfield when time was really the Red Devils’ greatest ally, the Salford players have had to hang on in, on a number of occasions, and this weekend’s clinching of the double over Hull was of very similar ilk.

The major issue nowadays is that the Reds are quite regularly winning this sort of game, which has not been the case on so many previous occasions, and that is something worth celebrating in itself.

Once again, on Sunday afternoon there were many teeth-clenching moments, particularly as the last quarter of the game wore on, because the visitors had shown themselves quite capable of scoring when they had the opportunity.  Indeed, they had done so as early as the fourth minute, when they broke from deep in their own half to go the remaining length of the field with impressive handling and support play, to score in manner reminiscent of many a Salford try.

And thereby possibly hangs the reason for the closeness of so many matches.  It would seem that a number of other sides, for whom wide expansive rugby has hitherto been kept to a premium, are now chancing their arm by embracing this style of attacking play to suit their own strengths.  Such slick, well-rehearsed ploys are extremely difficult to defend against, as Super League teams in abundance discovered last season, and now the Red Devils are having to contend with such, themselves.

There is no gainsaying the originals, however, as Salford players continue to increase their armoury with even more options, as shown by their third and possibly decisive try, three minutes before the interval.  That final spell of ten minutes had proved to be a purple patch for the home side, when they overturned the second of two, Hull, four-point leads both of which they held for eleven minutes, this one being with a scoreline of 6-10.

A number of repeated, short sets then enabled the Red Devils to build pressure before a Brodie Croft kick-through was taken by Deon Cross for a converted try, which restored their dominance.  It was their second score of this period, however, which, for we spectators, stood out from everything else.  What we saw was a seventy-metre kick downfield, followed by a thrilling and closely contested chase.

What we had to reflect upon before appreciating it fully was the skill, talent and understanding among the players.  Few of us, probably, were expecting anything along these lines when the ball was passed to Marc Sneyd direct from the base of the scrum. Yet everyone of those involved knew exactly what was about to happen; everyone was on the same page.  With all of the defending Hull players lined up at the scrum, the opportunity was wide open for the attempt.

Our number seven’s kicking game is much admired, and feared, throughout the league, but to place the ball so impeccably for it to slow almost to a standstill between the Hull try and dead-ball lines from such a distance took incredible skill, not to mention hours of practice.

The undoubted strength of the Salford team is the pace they have in the backs, and it was the ability of the two chasers, Ryan Brierley and Joe Burgess both, to outpace the sole Hull covering defender, showed that off to the hilt.  Brierley it was, perhaps for some, surprisingly so, who was first to the ball, but it still needed grounding cleanly, and doing that at such speed required even more from the fullback.  It would have been so easy to have scotched the chance, going at such a pace.

That try, and how it came about, put a whole different perspective on the game, and on Salford’s ability to score from a variety of means.  Short, kick-chase tries often seem a little innocuous when compared to skilful handling moves and cleverly angled running.  The thrill and excitement, talent and skill, as a result of the distance involved in this one, however, made it comparable to any score, by whatever means.  It will certainly cause a few more headaches among opposing defences.

Being involved in so many close games is certainly honing the Red Devils’ talent for managing the game in the final quarter, and it is this, which, despite our anxieties in the stands, enables them to concentrate on nullifying their opponents’ further opportunities, something that they were far better at, this week, than the previous one.

Consequently, two second half tries kept them ahead, albeit on a couple of occasions by only two points, after a worrying start to the half, and then, after twice missing his first goalkicks in five games Sneyd calmly slotted over a drop-goal to give the side a two score cushioning, which kept them comfortable to the final whistle.

Supporting Reds Rise Together without internet-access

The club can confirm a process for non-internet using supporters to support the Reds Rise Together Community Share Offer campaign.

“Community is the essence of what we are doing here, and so we want to remove as many barriers as possible for members of the community to join the 600+ new owners already backing the campaign.”

Salford Red Devils are delighted to announce Andy Ackers has signed a new four-year contract at the Club, keeping him in Red and White until 2026.

Despite the whole team making significant progress across last season, the 29-year-old was by far a stand-out performer for Paul Rowley’s side.

Ackers follows his teammates in the spine, Brodie Croft and Ryan Brierley by committing his long-term future to the Red Devils. Their relationship – alongside Marc Sneyd at scrum-half – was a key part of our run to the Betfred Super League semi-final in 2022.

Rowley – as a former hooker himself – has worked closely with our number nine and will undoubtably have had a massive impact on his performances. Notably, Ackers’ deception and maturity has shone through – showcasing his fully skillset at club and international level.

Reacting to his contract extension, Ackers has said: “I am made up to have my future sorted with Salford. The decision was a no brainier; I love the lads and the staff here – it feels like home!”

“I am looking forward to getting stuck in to the games now and working hard in the new season. I want to thank the players, the staff and my management team for getting this sorted.”

Head Coach, Paul Rowley has also added: “I worked with Andy for several years now and have watched him mature into a fantastic player.

“He’s worked tremendously hard with drive and determination to achieve his goals whilst having a selfless team-first mentality.

“Andy is a great player and a fantastic team mate. The environment is 100% a better place with Andy in it!”

Ian Blease, Salford’s Director of Rugby and Operations, has also said: “I am now so pleased we have managed to extend Andy’s contract for a further three years.

“Off the back off Brodie’s signature last week, I stated we are committed to keep our quality players at the club and again Andy’s signature epitomises our commitments.

“Andy has developed immensely as a player at our club since we signed him in 2020, and he got his rewards by making his England debut last season.

“Andy’s drive and ambition and his will to win is what we are looking to build our team around, I am delighted he has agreed to stay at the Red Devils.”

Ackers is the latest in a long line of people who have committed their long-term future to the Club. Have you? Buy your 2023 season ticket HERE!


Salford Red Devils travel to the DW Stadium on Sunday to face Wigan Warriors in their final pre-season test of 2023.

Paul Rowley’s side got off to a winning start last Sunday, dusting the off-season cobwebs by retaining the Peter Smethurst Trophy against Swinton Lions.

The Red Devils first-team built some valuable match fitness in the first forty, with Stuart Wilkinson’s Reserves allowed the second forty to showcase their talent.

Rhys Williams scored the Entertainers first try of 2023 in the left corner, but further crosses from Ken Sio, Andy Ackers, Ellis Longstaff and Ryan Brierley handed Salford a commanding 26-0 lead at the break.

The Betfred Championship quality Swinton possess took over in the second-half, but Wilkinson’s lads – including now-first-team members Joe Coope-Franklin and Billy Walkley – more than held their own.

Attentions have now turned to Sunday, where Salford will be facing Wigan in aid of Sam Powell’s testimonial. The hooker has enjoyed a stellar rugby league career and the game will act as a celebration of his incredible contribution to the sport over the years.

Rowley and his staff will have this final 80 minutes to assess his squad before the Betfred Super League kick-off on February 17th. Tickets are still available for our clash at Leigh Sports Village, click HERE to join us.

Squad News

Paul Rowley has named a 21-man travelling squad, which includes a potential Salford debut for Sam Stone. The back-rower joined the Club from Leigh Leopards in early November and arrives at the Salford Stadium with a lot of potential to progress his already vast rugby league knowledge.

Ben Hellewell may also make his second Red Devils debut following a successful two-week loan spell last season from Featherstone Rovers.

Full squad: Ryan Brierley, Kallum Watkins, Tim Lafai, Brodie Croft, Marc Sneyd, Jack Ormondroyd, Andy Ackers, King Vuniyayawa, Sam Stone, Oliver Partington, Chris Atkin, Tyler Dupree, Shane Wright, Alex Gerrard, Ellis Longstaff, Amir Bourouh, Rhys Williams, Matt Costello, Ben Hellewell and James Greenwood.

Rowley’s preview

For the first time in 2023, Head Coach Paul Rowley addressed the media ahead of this particular fixture.

The new Betfred Super League season was obviously high on the agenda, with everyone keen to know the match fitness of our squad with the opening game just around the corner.

“They’ll do more minutes this week against better opposition,” Rowley said.

“It’s a difficult challenge at the best of times going to Wigan, so it’ll be a good benchmark as friendlies are for, getting match fit and preparing for the rigours of the season.”

There was also plenty of praise for Powell; a player Rowley and his staff hold in the highest of respects. When asked whether the opposotion will have that extra motivation to win the game for their teammate, Rowley replied: “Nothing less; it doesn’t matter who they play, that’s the Wigan team and they have that culture.

“But we want to put our best foot forward for Sam Powell too.

“Sam is held in high respect from our Club as well from the outside looking in, so we want to pay our respects to Sam’s career by putting our own performance in and making sure it’s a good quality game.”

How to buy tickets

Pay on the day is still available for supporters who want to join us at the DW Stadium!


In response to recent media reports, Salford Red Devils would like to make the following statement:

“We are currently in dialogue to secure a long-term tenure that will present the club with the opportunity to increase match day controls and the associated incomes streams to ensure the long-term sustainability of the club.”
