Two tries in the last 15 minutes earned Wigan Warriors a late victory against Paul Rowley’s hard-working Salford Red Devils side.

It was a great spectacle for everyone inside the DW, but the Red Devils were on top for large periods of the game and will ultimately go home thinking what could have been.

Salford showed their intent from the off and completed a fantastic first defensive set.

However, a knock-on from Sam Stone gifted Wigan possession and Adam Sidlow’s high shot on the next play gave Harry Smith the easy task of opening the scoring with a penalty-goal.

In quite unusual circumstances, there were four ball steals in the opening half-hour and the arm-wrestle for field position was fierce.

Jake Wardle tried to crash over on the left, but five Salford bodies kept him up. That turnover turned out to be a pivotal point in the first-half, with the Red Devils making valuable metres downfield and forcing a drop-out on the last.

From the restart, Brodie Croft spread the ball right and sent Ryan Brierley towards the Wigan line. Off balance, our number one sent a lovely, disguised kick into the right corner for Ken Sio to gather and slide over. Marc Sneyd added the extras.

It wasn’t long until the hosts responded through Bevan French. The winger collected a low pass and handed off two Salford defenders on the right, jinxed past his marker and strolled under the sticks.

Sneyd was able to level the scores just before the break via a penalty-goal and bring to an end a pulsating first period.

HALF-TIME: Wigan Warriors 8-8 Salford Red Devils

The Reds were penalised on three separate occasions during the first few sets of the second forty, but a huge defensive effort kept Wigan out and brought rewards down the other end of the field.

Sio was the man to go over again for Salford, but it was the genius of Brodie Croft that made it happen. Burgess was almost in on the left, but a quick play-the-ball allowed us to go coast-to-coast and our number six sent the winger in with a beautiful high pass.

Sneyd extended the lead to eight, minutes later. Chris Atkin was hit late on the last and our number seven sent the penalty-goal over from around 35 metres out.

Salford were working hard in defence to try and keep Wigan at bay, but you could sense the tide was turning as the Red Devils tired, and the hosts firmly took advantage.

Much like his first of the game, French finished off a quick Cherry and Whites move by skipping through a wide-open gap in the Salford line and sliding over in the left corner.

With just two points in it, Salford were pinned on our own try-line and quick passing from the hosts carved the defence open once again.

Toby King was the scorer this time and Harry Smith’s conversion all-but confirmed the victory, with Salford’s hard-work in the last ten coming without any reward.

Salford Red Devils bounced back in style to convincingly beat Hull FC 14-60 in Round 4 of the Betfred Super League, at the MKM Stadium.

Paul Rowley’s side had been hampered by even more injury trouble during the week, with Oliver Partington and Joe Burgess the latest on the treatment table, but all 17-men contributed to a fine team performance this afternoon.

It was the hosts that opened the scoring on 3 minutes, with Jake Clifford spotting a gap on the left to squeeze between two Salford bodies and stretch over.

But from then onwards, the Red Devils took control.

A combination of Marc Sneyd and Ryan Brierley broke the FC line, with the latter stopped 10 metres out by Cam Scott. A quick play-the-ball allowed us to take advantage of the short numbers on the right, where Deon Cross was on hand to stroll over in the right corner.

One quickly became two minutes later. Following a set restart, Brodie Croft danced across the line to tee up his Aussie teammate, Shane Wright to bag his first of the season.

Croft was at it again for our next try; jinking his way through the Hull defence and slotting the supporting Brierley away to slide under the sticks.

Salford were in the groove, but the next try was caused by the brute strength of Tyler Dupree. Continuing his rich vain of form, the 23-year-old barged off multiple FC defenders and crashed over to extend our lead.

Wright was at it again just before the break. His acceleration caught the Hull defenders by surprise and there was no stopping our number 17 when he was charging towards the try-line – capping off an excellent first forty.

HALF-TIME: Hull FC 4-30 Salford Red Devils

Last week against Warrington, the Red Devils were caught out by some quick-fire tries just after the interval, but it was us who seized the initiative this time.

Croft – who was toying with the Hull defence at times – delayed his pass at just the right time for Cross to make the dart and stroll over unopposed.

Sneyd was the next on the scoresheet with a stunning, solo try. Dancing through the FC defence, our number seven left multiple bodies on the floor before diving over in front of the jubilant Salford supporters.

He then kicked the extras; one that brought up 1,000 career goals – a phenomenal achievement for a real Super League great.

It got even better shortly after. A superb team try, with Williams, Brierley and Sneyd all involved, allowed Lafai to stroll over in the left corner.

There were a pair of FC tries before the close, with Adam Swift intercepting and sprinting 80 metres and Brad Fash crashing under the posts.

But it was Salford who has the last laugh, with Lafai twisting and turning out of a challenge to stretch over.

Warrington Wolves produced a second-half comeback to beat Salford Red Devils 36-20 in Round 3 of the Betfred Super League.

Paul Rowley’s outfit started the game on the front foot and Tyler Dupree was the first to break Warrington’s defensive line with a positive, charging run.

The Red Devils were playing with a relentless intensity; potentially typified by Ryan Brierley tipping a neat grubber kick from George Williams back to Joe Burgess in his own in-goal area to charge out and start another attack.

Wire, however, opened the scoring with their next set of six. Williams sent a grubber into the left corner for Ben Currie to chase, with the number 11 stretching just ahead of Brierley to touch down.

Salford bounced straight back and got on the board through Ellis Longstaff. Oliver Partington did superbly to bounce his defender and tee up Andy Ackers; the hooker got it started through multiple hands and Burgess’ break on the left allowed the debutant some space to collect and slide over.

Rowley’s men found their groove and started to play the ball quicker and quicker. Ken Sio spotted a chance to intercept 20 metres out from our own try line and clung on to spring a rapid Salford attack.

Brierley was in support with open field, but he still had so much to do to hand his side the lead. Racing downfield, our number one jinked outside Matt Dufty to slide over in the right corner.

And it wasn’t long till Salford were over again. Marc Sneyd skipped across the Warrington line on the last and spotted a gap to squeeze through and extend the lead – converting his own try.

There was even time for Sneyd to add a penalty-goal before the break, after the hosts were penalised for a high tackle.

HALF-TIME: Warrington Wolves 6-20 Salford Red Devils

Warrington took control of the game at the start of the second 40, with Ashton getting them back into the game via an acrobatic finish in the left corner – despite the best efforts of Brodie Croft.

Salford were defending repeat set after repeat set on their own try line and showed incredible grit to come away unscathed at times, but the game changed when Brierley was sent to the sin bin for holding down.

Not even a minute later, Thomas Mikaele powered under the sticks and Stefan Ratchford converted to bring Wire within two.

Daryl Powell’s side were dominating the play and Williams played the ball quickly to skip a few challenges to find space on the right. His chipped kick was easily gathered by Josh Thewlis to go over unopposed.

It was the same source who extended Warrington’s advantage moments later. Watkins lost his footing and Williams was quick to spot the opportunity and slide over to the left of the sticks.

The game had got away from the Red Devils and Matt Dufty made sure of the two points by latching onto Peter Mata’utia’s offload.

Just like Mikaele’s effort earlier in the half, the referee decided to award Ratchford the opportunity to add two more in front of the sticks for a penalty when Dufty grounded the original try.

FULL-TIME: Warrington Wolves 36-20 Salford Red Devils


Salford Red Devils kicked-off their 2023 Betfred Super League adventure with a hard-fought 10-20 victory over Leigh Leopards.

It hands the Red Devils their first-ever win at Leigh Sports Village, but a more important two competition points to get the season up and running.

Paul Rowley’s side showed their intent right from the start. After our first set, Ryan Brierley chased a high kick 60 metres downfield to pin Leigh in their own 20.

The hosts quickly took control of the game soon after, however. Despite some excellent defending, a well-worked move left and a high, spinning pass by Lachlan Lam found Josh Charnley to charge and slide over in the corner.

Salford had to pick themselves up and build some momentum. A combination of bodies crashed Lam out of touch on the half-hour mark and that was the moment the tide really did turn.

After building some pressure, Andy Ackers sprung from the ruck and found Brodie Croft 10 metres out. Club captain, Kallum Watkins was already alive and our number six played a neat short pass to send him through the gap and over the try-line. Marc Sneyd converting for the first of four successful goals.

One quickly became two when Ryan Brierley forced a goal-line drop out. Around five metres out, Ackers sprung out of dummy half and sold Leigh with a dummy to scurry under the posts.

HALF TIME: Leigh Leopards 4-12 Salford Red Devils

Leigh started the second-half on the front foot, but in the 50th minute, it was our number one who got himself on the scoresheet.

Croft – at the heart of a lot of our attacking play – weaved his way through the Leigh line 40 metres out and teed up the supporting Brierley to race through and slide under the sticks.

His try was important, but a last-ditch challenge on Charnley moments later was equally as important. The Leigh winger raced away down the right and only had our full-back to beat; but despite so much twisting and turning, Brierley executed a perfect tackle to stop a certain try.

It did come at a cost, however, with Sneyd sent to the sin bin for holding down at the ruck.

Brierley made yet another try-saving tackle minutes later. Lam raced down Salford’s centre and backed his speed to race over in the corner, but our full-back was on hand to drag him down.

Leigh played quick and tried to stab a grubber kick into the corner, with the video referee penalising Watkins for a professional foul and awarding Leigh a penalty-try.

With Sneyd off the field and Leigh pilling on the pressure, Salford’s defence was excellent in the final 20 minutes and worked extremely hard to protect their eight-point lead.

They were even awarded a penalty one minute from time – with Sneyd converting to make the two points safe.

Match Report | Wakefield Trinity 33-22 Salford Red Devils

Salford Red Devils fell to a 33-22 defeat against Wakefield Trinity at the Mobile Rocket Stadium.
Wakefield opened the scoring through David Fifita, but this was soon cancelled out by Niall Evalds. Tries for the hosts followed from Ryan Hampshire, Reece Lyne and Pauli Pauli while Kris Welham crossed for Salford.
Jacob Miller furthered Wakefield’s lead in the second half. Quickfire tries from Derrell Olpherts and Jackson Hastings gave glimpse of a fightback but Brough would add a penalty and drop-goal to give Wakefield the victory.
Fifita’s try came on the back of a number of dropped balls from both sides with three Red Devils failing to gather possession before the prop-forward scooped up the ball to score. Brough converted.
Wakefield’s lead didn’t last long however as Salford broke free down the left-hand side and Olpherts’ clever kick inside was pounced on by an onrushing Evalds. Chamberlain’s conversion levelled the scores.

Salford would narrow the deficit as Rob Lui’s looping pass found Ed Chamberlain who streaked away and found Welham in support with the experienced centre scoring on his return. But Wakefield finished the first half scoring as Pauli powered over from close-range. Brought’s conversion ensured Trinity had a 14-point lead at the break.
It was Wakefield who opened the scoring in the second-half, also. Brough’s clever reverse kick was taken by Miller to the right of the posts. Brough again converted.
The Red Devils would muster a mini-revival as Hastings found Bibby who in turn pulled off an exceptional offload to Olpherts who scored in the corner. Chamberlain converted from the touchline.
Hastings – who was involved in the previous try – again looked to the left-hand side but cut back inside himself and barged his way over despite the efforts of three Wakefield defenders. Chamberlain converted to reduce the arrears to eight points.
With 15 minutes left on the clock, Brough added a penalty goal and then followed with a drop-goal just two minutes later to move Wakefield into a 33-22 lead which they would see out despite Salford’s late pressure.

Match Report | Salford Red Devils 22-30 Wigan Warriors

Salford Red Devils fell to a narrow eight-point defeat at the hands of Betfred Super League champions Wigan Warriors at the The Salford Stadium.
The hosts went into the break two points behind with Josh Jones, Derrell Olpherts and Niall Evalds scoring for Salford while George Williams, Thomas Leuluai and Joe Greenwood went over for Wigan. Zak Hardaker’s third conversion being the difference between the sides.
Salford regained the lead when Adam Walker scored his first Red Devils try on his home debut, but Williams would score twice more to complete a hat-trick and consign Salford to defeat.

The Red Devils hold on the game fell away as Wigan scored three tries inside seven first half minutes. Williams was first to score after he collected Jarrod Sammut’s pass at the second attempt before Leuluai and Greenwood both forced their way over for the visitors. Hardaker converted all three.

Match Report | Catalans Dragons 0-46 Salford Red Devils

 Salford Red Devils ended an eight year wait for a victory in Perpignan in emphatic fashion with a dominant 0-46 win over Catalans Dragons.
Jake Bibby and George Griffin both scored twice while Joey Lussick, Jackson Hastings, Niall Evalds and Ken Sio all also found the try-line in a rampant evening at the Stade Gilbert Brutus for Ian Watson’s men.
It took just eight minutes for the Red Devils to take the lead as Lussick burrowed his way over from acting halfback in almost identical fashion to his tries against Leeds Rhinos and Hull Kingston Rovers earlier in the season. Sio converted.
A real arm-wrestle ensued throughout the first half but Salford were on top and they took their chance to further their lead when Sio slotted a penalty goal after 27 minutes.
As half-time drew closer, Salford turned on the style with two tries in quick succession. Griffin sliced through the Catalans defence to score from close-range before Bibby scored on the hooter. The Dragons put the ball to ground and a sensational pick up from Sio got Salford on the break. Hastings kicked forward for the winger who narrowly missed the ball, but Bibby was on hand to finish a great try. Sio converted the first to give Salford an 18-0 lead at the break.
The Red Devils begun the second half where they left off before the interval as Bibby scored his second try of the evening just one minute after getting back underway. Evalds slid through the Catalans defence from deep before Bibby and Hastings linked up well to allow the centre to score. Sio converted.
Just minutes later, Salford extended their lead even further thanks to a second Griffin try. Bibby’s offload was kicked down field by Evalds and collected by an onrushing Hastings who displayed fantastic vision to find the back-rower who finished under the posts. Sio converted.
Salford’s dominance continued and Hastings went from provider to scorer as he and Bibby again caused issues for the Dragons defence. Hastings weaved around the Catalans defence before finding Bibby who offloaded the ball back to the Australian to score.
Evalds was a constant thorn in the side of the Dragons and he was rewarded with a try of his own a few minutes later. Josh Jones put Lussick through a gap and the hooker tipped onto a pacey Evalds who finishes some flowing Rugby League from the Red Devils. Sio converted to take Salford to the 40-point mark.
It was Sio who would have the final word as he strolled over the try-line and under the Catalans posts after a clever offload from Bibby. The winger converted to round off a truly memorable win for Salford.

Match Report | Salford Red Devils 4-26 St Helens

Despite a valiant effort, Salford Red Devils fell to a 4-26 defeat to St Helens at the The Salford Stadium in their fifth fixture of the 2019 Betfred Super League season.
Although the 22-point margin may suggest otherwise, the game was a hard-fought affair however the current table-toppers came out on top thanks to a double from James Roby and tries from Mark Percival, Jonny Lomax and Regan Grace. Derrell Olpherts crossed for Salford’s only try of the game.
The evening didn’t get off to a great start for the Red Devils as they lost George Griffin in the warm-up and he was subsequently replaced by Daniel Murray. However, the struggles continued five minutes into the game as Lee Mossop left the field with a similar injury leaving Salford down to 16 men for the remainder of the game.
Jansin Turgut went close for Salford in the early stages but was stopped just short of the line. But it was St Helens who opened the scoring just before the midpoint of the first half as Percival climbed highest for a cross-field kick. Lachlan Coote converted.
Injury issues continued for Salford as Greg Burke had to leave the field for a concussion assessment with Gil Dudson returning after just a few minutes on the interchange bench. The visitors would soon score again as Lomax managed to force his way over from close-range.
On the half-time hooter, Roby managed to burrow his way under the Salford defence. Coote converted to further the lead going into the break.
Following an immense cover tackle from Jackson Hastings, Salford would grab the first try after the interval as Olpherts rose highest to claim a cross-field kick and get the Red Devils on the scoreboard.
St Helens immediately replied, however. Dominique Peyroux was denied by video referee Rob Hicks but from the following scrum as the ball went wide to Grace to go over in the corner. The Red Devils continued to push but couldn’t cross again and it was Saints who finished the scoring as Roby grabbed his second of the game five minutes from time.

In similar fashion, the Red Devils scored first in the second half through Josh Jones, but Leeds would run away with the game with Walker completing a hat-trick, Hurrell notching a brace and tries from Matt Parcell and Ash Handley.
It was a positive start for Salford as, after just seven minutes, Lussick managed to burrow his way over the try-line from a few metres out. Ken Sio converted.
Leeds would level the scores after off-season signing Trent Merrin found Cuthbertson with a neat offload. The Rhinos immediately followed with another try as Walker broke clear of the Salford defence. Leeds would complete a purple patch of three tries in six minutes as Hurrell latched onto a low Lolohea grubber kick. The half-back successfully converted all three tries.
The Red Devils narrowed the gap just three minutes after the interval as Jones managed to carry three defenders over the line. Sio converted. Salford almost followed up with another try as Junior Sa’u went over but couldn’t ground the ball under pressure from three Leeds defenders.
On the 50-minute mark, Jansin Turgut would be sent to the sin-bin for an altercation at the play-the-ball. Lolohea successfully kicked at goal from the resulting penalty but Sio would close the deficit back to six points with a penalty goal of his own three minutes later.
However, Leeds would run away with the game in the final twenty minutes. Hurrell stepped over for his second of the game before hooker Parcell jinked his way over from acting half-back. Lolohea’s conversion opened up a 16-point lead.
Another try would come a few minutes later as Walker collected a clever low kick from Lolohea and the full-back would round off his hat-trick just two minutes after as he finished a flowing Leeds move from inside their own half. Handley crossed with ten minutes remaining to finish the scoring.

Match Report | Salford Red Devils 24-0 London Broncos

Salford Red Devils earned a hard-fought 24-0 victory over Super League new boys London Broncos which puts Ian Watson’s side atop the table after the second round of fixtures.
The hosts went into the break with a slender 6-0 lead thanks to Ken Sio’s try on his competitive home debut. Salford pulled away in the second half with tries from Jackson Hastings, Niall Evalds and Josh Jones.
A real arm-wrestle ensued for the opening twenty minutes but the Red Devils did have the better of possession and position and it eventually paid dividend when Sio crossed following a neat offload from Jones.
Salford continued to control the first half however failed to add any more points.
But it would take just two minutes of the second half for Salford to extend their lead. Evalds’ low kick came back off the upright and Hastings was the quickest to react getting his tally for the 2019 season underway.
London did apply some pressure to the Salford line, but the Red Devils resilience shone through and Hastings would add a penalty goal in the 55th minute to maintain control.
With ten minutes remaining, Evalds found an opening in the Broncos defence and jinked his way through for his fourth of the season. Hastings would add the extras to all but confirm victory. Salford were reduced to twelve men with five minutes left as Lee Mossop was sent to the sin-bin for an altercation with Greg Richards.
The Red Devils weren’t done however as Jones – who provided the assist for the opener – would get himself on the scoresheet in the final minute. The robust second-rower bounced off two London defenders before planting the ball down to round off a brilliant afternoon at the The Salford Stadium.
