Niall Evalds returned to the AJ Bell Stadium for the first time in almost three months and was delighted to see the Red Devils overcome adversity to beat Leeds Rhinos for just the third time in the Betfred Super League era.
Evalds, sponsored by The Dog & Partridge, said: “We were pleased with the performance particularly given all the adversity we faced with Lee Mossop getting sent off and Jackson Hastings having to go off after twenty minutes.
“It was a tough stint. Leeds play fast as they always do with a lot of offloading, so our defensive effort was outstanding you know we clung on in there.
“There were times in which we fatigued, and Leeds were looking good so but yeah I thought we showed great determination to hang in there.
“We played pretty smart as well kicking the ball out when we needed a rest and I thought we played well overall.”
Niall Evalds also discussed his return from injury, crossing for a double against Leeds Rhinos and the upcoming Qualifiers campaign all of which can be seen on Salford Red Devils TV.
