RYAN BRIERLEY WINS AUGUST PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Ryan Brierley has been voted August’s Player of the Month.

One of our own has picked up the accolade for the second time this season, after winning the award in June for his stellar performances across the month.

August has been exactly the same for Brierley, who has shown on a consistent basis all season why he is one of the most underrated players across the whole division.

This month he has fought off competition from teammates, Ken Sio, Oliver Partington and Brad Singleton, who have all contributed to the teams’ success in the past few weeks.

In reaction to winning the award, Brierley has said: “I’m pleased to win Player of the Month award voted for by the fans, it’s always nice to be recognised.

“The season is still alive so we need your support more than ever Friday night!”

AUGUST PLAYER OF THE MONTH NOMINEES REVEALED

It’s time for you to vote for your August Player of the Month…

With the Betfred Super League season almost over, it’s crunch time for Salford Red Devils in their pursuit of playoff rugby.

We have some big games coming up in September, but last month saw the Red Devils return to form after a six-game losing streak.

Despite a narrow loss to St Helens, we picked-up two massive wins over Huddersfield Giants and Wakefield Trinity to close out August.

Across that time, four players stood out above the rest.

Starting with new signing, Brad Singleton – who has taken to life at Salford by storm.

Since joining the club in mid-July, he has been a mainstay in Paul Rowley’s starting line-up and produced some stellar performances in the forward pack.

Next up is Oliver Partington.

It’ll come as no great shock to anyone to see the prop forward amongst the four candidates, after some high-quality minutes across the month.

After hitting 100 Super League tries and reaching 100 Salford Red Devils appearances last month, Ken Sio is your next nominee.

And last, but certainly not least, is Ryan Brierley.

He’s one of our own and continues to set the standard with some outstanding performances at fullback.

So, who gets your vote this month? Cast yours below!

CHRIS ATKIN WINS JULY PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Chris Atkin has been voted July’s Player of the Month.

Mr Versatile has won the award ahead of teammates, Ben Hellewell and Ken Sio, who have both also enjoyed some excellent individual performances across July.

It was a tough month as a collective, but Atkin was still a shining light for Paul Rowley’s side.

Constantly shuffled around the team sheet without complaint, the 30-year-old is certainly a fan favourite and perhaps it’s about time he got his hands on an individual accolade.

Reacting to winning the award, Atkin said: “I really appreciate all the support from the fans.

“Playing out of position, I have taken on a lot of different roles this season, so it is great to get that recognition.”

A huge congratulations to Chris for the award!

MAY PLAYER OF THE MONTH NOMINEES REVEALED

It’s time for you to vote for your May Player of the Month…

We’ve hit the halfway point in the Betfred Super League season and Paul Rowley’s side are well amongst a tightly-contested pack near the top.

May was a hugely successful month for the Red Devils. They kicked it off with a rare win at Headingley against Leeds Rhinos, before narrowly losing to the World Champions, St Helens a week later.

Our Betfred Challenge Cup journey got underway with an impressive attacking showing against Huddersfield Giants; setting up a crunch clash with Hull KR in the quarter-final.

And last, but certainly not least, a 29-22 home victory against an inform Hull FC to close out the month.

It was a real, strong team effort across the month, but three players stood out above the rest.

The first is full-back, Ryan Brierley, who has earned his third consecutive nomination.

Our number one has been near-flawless in both defence and attack, contributing heavily to everything we’ve achieved this season, let alone last month.

As has our second nominee, Marc Sneyd.

Records just keep continuing to tumble for our prolific number seven and his kicking game – unsurprisingly – has been the difference in a lot of games this season.

The final nominee is the aptly nicknamed ‘Mr Versatile’, Chris Atkin, who has been in flying form across April.

His ability to play multiple positions has been vital for the squad and his selflessness to play a multitude of different roles has often been highlighted by our Head Coach.

We also recently had the extremely positive news that our number 14 has committed his long-term future to the club – keeping him in Red and White until 2025.

So… who gets your vote? Let us know by voting in the poll below!

SHANE WRIGHT WINS APRIL PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Shane Wright has been voted Salford Red Devils’ Player of the Month for April.

In a month where Paul Rowley’s side continued to climb the Betfred Super League table, Wright was one of the standout performers across the month and has scooped the award ahead Ryan Brierley, Kallum Watkins and Ken Sio – who all enjoyed outstanding months.

Despite his energetic and unrelenting effort in defence, the Aussie has also became quite a try machine, with his two crosses in April bumping his tally to four in the 2023 campaign.

His versatility to operate at prop, loose forward or even second-row has been a potent weapon for the Red Devils and he will no doubt continue to play a valuable role as the season progresses.

In reaction to winning the award, Wright said: “A huge thank you to everyone who jumped on and voted. I’m pumped to win the award!”

A huge congratulations to Shane for the award!

APRIL PLAYER OF THE MONTH NOMINEES REVEALED

It’s time for you to vote for your April Player of the Month…

The international break is upon us, so after ten games, it is a perfect time for everyone to pause and reflect on the season so far.

April was month where Paul Rowley’s side made real progression. We picked-up three hard-fought wins against Leigh Leopards, Castleford Tigers and Catalans Dragons, while we also welcomed back some valuable players from injury.

But despite such a strong team effort, four players stood out above the rest in this month.

The first is Shane Wright – who has turned into quite a try-machine recently. After bagging a brace against Hull FC last month, he has scored a further two against Huddersfield and Castleford in April.

His all-round performance has been outstanding, with the Aussie also nominated for the Glen’s Super League April Player of Month, earlier this week.

Ken Sio – despite picking up another injury before our Round 10 clash – has made a massive impact across April. His electric speed and skill gives Salford a potent weapon on the right and will no-doubt finish the campaign as one of our top try scorers.

Earning back-to-back nominations, Ryan Brierley is continuing to prove why he is one of the best full-backs in the Betfred Super League.

And last but certainly not least is Kallum Watkins, who continues to show on and off the field why he was chosen to be Club captain at the beginning of 2023.

So… who gets your vote? Let us know by voting in the poll below!

TYLER DUPREE WINS MARCH PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Tyler Dupree has been voted Salford Red Devils’ Player of the Month for March.

It may come as no surprise that our number 16 has scooped the award after a stellar month in Red and White. However, he did fight off competition from fellow teammates, Ryan Brierley, Marc Sneyd and Kallum Watkins.

His incredible month started at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, where his running power and tackle bursts caused Warrington Wolves a whole heap of problems – including an incredible show and go on halfway.

Despite Wire’s second-half comeback, Dupree received some worthy praise and carried that form into our next Betfred Super League game against Hull FC. In a 14-60 demolition, he bumped off multiple FC defenders to crash over under the sticks for his first of the season.

He was dominant in our next encounter against Wakefield Trinity, where Marc Sneyd’s drop-goal earned Salford two points. And despite defeat at the DW Stadium a week later, Dupree was – again – excelling at prop.

In reaction to winning the award, Dupree said: “I’m buzzing to be given Player of the Month and I am grateful to everyone that voted!”

A huge congratulations to Tyler for the award!

MARCH PLAYER OF THE MONTH NOMINEES REVEALED

It’s time for you to vote for your March Player of the Month…

The Betfred Super League campaign is now well underway, and Salford Red Devils sit fifth in the table after six intense rounds of rugby league.

March kicked-off with a tough trip to table-toppers Warrington Wolves, where Paul Rowley’s side were looking to bounce back from defeat to Hull KR, a week prior.

Despite leading 6-20 at half-time – including a stunning solo try by Ryan Brierley – the hosts seized momentum in the second-half and turned the game around to win 36-20.

The Red Devils bounced back in style in their next outing; completely putting Hull FC to the sword at the MKM with some scintillating attacking play.

That 14-60 win was backed-up by another nervy, but nonetheless two points at home to struggling Wakefield Trinity. Marc Sneyd’s drop-goal in golden point secured the 14-13 victory.

The final game this month was a trip to face Matt Peet’s Wigan Warriors. Two late tries were the difference, with Bevan French proving the difference in a 20-16 win for the hosts.

Four players stood out above the rest in this month.

Tyler Dupree has been in flying form so far this season. The prop – at just 23 years of age – is showing maturity beyond his years and his performances the month hands him a well-deserved back-to-back Player of the Month nominations to kick-off 2023.

The next nominee was our golden point hero, Marc Sneyd. Our number seven kicked his 1,000th career goal against his old club, Hull FC and has been pivotal in our three, early-season victories.

As has Ryan Brierley – our next nominee. Scoring tries in two of the matches and assisting in the two others, he has consistently proven himself as one of the best support players in Super League.

The final nominee is our captain, Kallum Watkins. Continuing his incredible run in the second-row, Watkins has played long and tiring minutes this month, but he continues to produce the mixture of hard-work and quality that makes him the world class player he is.

FEBRUARY PLAYER OF THE MONTH NOMINEES REVEALED

It’s time for you to vote for your February Player of the Month…

In a month where Salford Red Devils kickstarted their 2023 Betfred Super League season, three players stood out above the rest.

Oliver Partington – who join the Red Devils from Wigan Warriors in the off-season – has enjoyed a flying start to life in Red and White.

After receiving the number 13 shirt, the prop/loose forward made 37 tackles in just 64 minutes on debut against Leigh Leopards – a game Salford won 10-20. That performance also earned him a spot in the Super League Team of the Round alongside teammate, Ryan Brierley.

Tyler Dupree – our second nominee – was equally as dominant across the month. Arriving at the Salford Stadium midway through 2022, the youngster has taken the Super League by storm and showed maturity far beyond his years.

The final February nominee is 2022 Super League Dream Team member, Tim Lafai. After reaching the World Cup final with Samoa, the centre has carried his incredible 2022 form into the new season and produced two solid displays to kick-off 2023.

The vote is now CLOSED. Who has been chosen as your February POTM?

Brodie Croft named August’s Betfred Super League Player of the Month

It gives us great pleasure to announce Brodie Croft has been named August’s Betfred Super League Player of the Month. 

Our number six has enjoyed a sensational debut season in Red and White and was recently shortlisted for the Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel award. Croft’s energy in the halves has been a driving force behind the club’s play-off push and notching 32 try contributions across the campaign is an impressive feat.

Upon receiving yet another personal accolade, Croft was very quick to praise the rest of the team, saying: “I’m very humbled to receive this award. We’ve been playing some really good footy as a team and I’m loving playing each week with this great group of guys!”

Looking specifically at August, the Aussie helped the Red Devils bounce back from defeat at Headingley with a 33-16 thrashing of Huddersfield Giants at the The Salford Stadium. There were points across that 80 minutes where Salford were under pressure, but some grit and determination in defence earned a crucial two points.

The team then flew out to Perpignan and provided an attacking masterclass against Catalans Dragons. A 14-46 victory solidified their place in the top six, but Croft’s dazzling display was just another highlight in a truly outstanding season.

Salford returned to the AJ Bell with a 28-18 win over Hull FC and booked their play-off place a week later with a 10-50 demolition of Castleford Tigers at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Croft’s efforts have been recognised by the panellists and he’s pipped all the other nominees to be named August’s Player of the Month.

The half-back will unfortunately not be available for Saturday’s semi-final after failing his HIA in the eliminator play-off, but the players will be certainly be fired up and want to give Croft the Grand Final he deserves after such a high-quality year.
