RED DEVILS IN DEPTH: CASTLEFORD V SALFORD

It might well be an old adage to say that you can only beat whatever is put in front of you, but it could never have been more true than of Salford, last Sunday, in their Round 14 encounter with a much depleted Castleford side, comprised, in part, of players from the Tigers’ Youth system, but with a number of first teamers in the pack to give them some stiffening.

In that prior knowledge, it would be easy for anyone to look at the scoreline and to dismiss the result as a mismatch.  That view, however, pays scant respect to the difficulties Salford themselves had had to face, and overcome, in order to be in a position to turn out at all, after covid, and its associated isolating, had sought to inflict its ravages on the team.

The Red Devils had only seven players in training up until 48 hours before their trip to West Yorkshire, with 11 players in isolation and seven positive COVID-19 cases. For the first time this season, Marshall was unable to name a 21-man squad for a fixture and had to draft in two Saints players last minute to field a team.

Running up seventy points in any match, as was accrued by the Red Devils, however, really does take some doing, requiring, as it does, intense concentration and focus, considerable reserves of energy, together with high levels of desire and commitment, all of which the visitors to the Mend-A-Hose Jungle showed in abundance.

Once they had got into their stride, the Salford team looked most impressive as they dominated possession and field position.  The well-structured approach work, with ball in hand, alongside strict adherence to their game plan, which has been evident rather more spasmodically in other recent games, served them well as they launched attack after attack on the Tigers’ line.

The basis for them all was the hard work undertaken by the forwards.  Skipper for the day, Greg Burke, played a captain’s role, leading by example with his incisive running, as too did Oliver Roberts, upon his introduction, while Ryan Lannon, had one of his best games in a Salford shirt.

If there were any criticism to be found in their performance, it was in their conceding of eighteen points.  The coaching staff might well be disappointed by all three of Castleford’s tries, but, for we fans, it was probably just one more than we really would have liked.  Twelve points seems something of a triviality in such a high scoring game, but, when it becomes eighteen, it becomes rather more significant.

Furthermore, whilst those first two came at the start of each half, when the Castleford players were fresh, eager, and energetic, the final one came ten minutes from the end, when a lapse in Salford’s goal-line defence allowed a second try in their right-hand corner, both of which were converted from out wide.

For the bulk of the game, though, it was all Salford, as they ran in a total of twelve tries.  The last fifteen minutes of the first half saw them run in three, which put them in a quite commanding lead at half time.

The last thirty minutes of the game saw the Reds cross no less than seven times, spaced out with only a few minutes between each.  It was particularly good to see winger, Rhys Williams, who has been one of our stand-out players all season, rewarded with a brace, the second of which was reminiscent of both his length-of-the-field effort at Wembley, and also his immediate solo score, straight from a restart, against Toronto Wolfpack in 2020.

Probably the one which should give us real hope for better things to come, was the absolutely crucial half back pairing of Dec Patten and Chris Atkin, which had done so much to put Huddersfield to the sword, combining, through slick inter-passing between the two of them, to put Atkin over between the posts.

After all the team has been through over the past couple of weeks, this win was the tonic that they really deserved, not to mention the extra percentage benefit it brings.  They now have the opportunity to build on this over the coming weeks and produce further victories to bolster their improving league position.

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.

Atkin pens new deal

Salford Red Devils are delighted to announce that Chris Atkin has signed a two-year contract extension with the option for a third. 

Atkin has impressed since he arrived from Hull Kingston Rovers last year, and despite what has been a slow start to the season for the Red Devils, the 28-year-old has been one of Salford’s standout performers in 2021.

The number 18 has got himself on the scoreboard a handful of times already this season, recently scoring the winning drop goal in a hard-fought away victory over Ian Watson’s Huddersfield Giants.

Speaking on extending his Salford stay, Atkin said: “It was an easy decision to make when I sat down with the club. Salford has quickly become my home since I arrived here last year and everyone at Salford has always made me feel welcome and valued, our loyal fans included.

“I’ve enjoyed my time here so far, we’ve got a brilliant setup at Salford and I’m really looking forward to the future.”

Speaking on Atkin’s contract extension, head coach Richard Marshall said: “I’m really pleased to see Chris pen a new deal with us, he’s a quality player and a brilliant individual off the field.

“He’s been one of our most improved players this year and has really bought into our plans and the direction that our club is heading.”

Director of rugby and operations Ian Blease added: “To have Chris with us for the next two years, possibly three, is fantastic news for all involved at Salford.

“Chris is a key member of the squad and it’s great to know that he will continue to be!

“We are continuing our search for more additions for 2022 as we aim to push on from our success in recent years.”

RED DEVILS IN DEPTH: SALFORD v LEEDS

Just over a week after they had toppled Huddersfield on their own ground, Salford Red Devils found the task of repeating the performance against Leeds Rhinos a bridge too far, and they were unable to repeat their giant-killing act, in their first home game for three weeks.

It was, in fact, a performance rather removed from the calm, controlled, determined manner in which they had overcome the loss of a player after only half-an-hour, to register their first away win of the season, last week.

Yet, as happened in both that match and the previous one at Hull KR, the Red Devils were well in contention for the opening quarter, going set for set with Leeds and looking every bit as capable of containing them as they had done against the Giants.  The game was to turn, however, just as it had at Hull, on the loss of a player, first one, and then, unbelievably, two others later being sin-binned, that disrupted the Salford organisation, both on attack and defence, thus putting the Rhinos in the ascendency.

The first of these, which was a red card, came on sixteen minutes when skipper, Lee Mossop, was given his marching orders, along with Bodene Thompson, in the most unusual of circumstances, in which Konrad Hurrell also had to be replaced, not to return, after failing a head test.

There are always winners and losers in situations like this, and the extra space consequently created on the field was rather more beneficial to Leeds, with the pace they have in abundance throughout the side, despite neither team having numerical advantage.  It took them less than a minute to turn that benefit into points, with a converted try.

The twelve men of Salford then became eleven with the sin-binning of Jack Wells, and Leeds celebrated their numerical advantage within three minutes with another four points.

However, the Salford players regrouped for almost the remainder of the half, to get back into contention. Chris Atkin intercepted a pass from Kruise Leeming to run almost the entire length of the field and put his side on the scoresheet.  He even had the confidence to try and beat one of the pursuing defenders in the in-goal area, in order to increase the prospects of the successful conversion which followed.

With less than three minutes to go to halftime and Salford now only two points in arrears, Marshall’s men, who seemed to be in control of the arm wrestle, gifted Leeds a penalty for offside that gave the Rhinos the lifeline they gratefully received, from which they ran in not one, but two, converted tries, before the whistle brought the half to its conclusion.

Although there was still forty minutes to go, that one, basic, fundamental error, in itself, had probably put the game somewhat beyond Salford’s reach, and the second half saw the visitors scything through for three further tries.  Their command of the ruck area was proving to be quite crucial, with their two, interchanging, hookers making regular inroads into the Red Devils’ line.

The dual sin-binning of Ryan Lannon and Luke Gale did little to help the home side’s cause with it providing even more space for them to have to defend, and the Rhinos almost immediately exploited this with their first score of the half.

Yet Salford’s approach work with the ball was good and they held their own in the arm wrestles that ensued.  They did however lack that necessary cutting edge near the line, and, as the half wore on, their chances of scoring a second try began to look a little slim.

Slim, that is, until one little bit of pure magic from the feet of Morgan Escare on the wing, saw him round his opposite number and then repeat the operation around the fullback to score another long-distance try and give his teammates some late encouragement.

The Red Devils will have only a few days turn-around now before they take on Wakefield in Thursday evening’s home fixture but with it comes ample opportunity to return to the form found in Round 10.

RED DEVILS IN DEPTH: HUDDERSFIELD V SALFORD

If a week is a long time in politics, as is so often alleged, then it can seem a lifetime in rugby league, such were the differences in Salford’s performance, in this weekend’s fixture at Huddersfield from that which had been served up the week before against Hull KR.

Yet, as far as the context of the game was concerned, there were a number of similarities between the two.  Both entailed travelling over the Pennines into Yorkshire, both were against opponents who were in a similar position in the league to the Red Devils but both doing marginally better as far as results were concerned, while the injury situation in the Salford camp was still the major obstacle to the acquisition of that long sought-after latest victory.

That injury situation only got worse, twenty minutes from the kick off, when captain, and corner-stone of the pack, Lee Mossop, was forced to pull out with a calf strain, leaving Jack Ormondroyd to be hastily drafted in, on the bench.

The similarities continued as the game progressed through its early stages, with the Red Devils being the quicker side to settle and producing some organised and well-structured rugby, yet again, to take the lead, after nine minutes of play, when dummy half, Andy Ackers showed once more what a tricky handful he is to deal with around the play-the-ball, going over between the posts.

This really put Salford in the driving seat and they consequently took control of the game until it was, once again, followed by a reduction to twelve men, this time for the duration of the encounter, and that is when the similarities between the two games finished completely.  This time the Salford players refused to be put out of their stride, no matter what, and whereas the week before they had gone into their shell and consequently lost their momentum, on Friday night they just kept a grip on their feelings, stuck with the game plan with which they had been provided, and executed it through right to the end of the match.

The outcome was they produced their best eighty minutes of sustained contested rugby, both in attack, and particularly in defence.  The combination at half back of Dec Patton and Chris Atkin appeared to be the best pairing that has been on view this season, and the two gelled together extremely well.  The effect on the rest of the side was a joy to behold, and their skilful handling in the slippery, greasy, conditions was especially commendable, particularly when their opponents struggled to retain possession and turned over the ball on a number of occasions.

Atkin has always been one of the keenest and most reliable of players this season, whether at hooker or half back, while Patton relished his return to starting in the halves, giving the whole team the leadership and direction that has been in rather short supply in recent weeks.  At one stoppage in the second half he could be seen going round instructing every individual player of what he wanted from each.

Much has been written, and said, about the dismissal of James Greenwood, after around half an hour, but what is of the greatest importance, and remains unchanged irrespective of which individual had been involved, is that Salford played for over forty-five minutes with only twelve players against the thirteen of Huddersfield, with only the cushioning of a mere six points’ start, and still won.

Following this dismissal the Giants immediately upped their tempo and their physicality, to put Salford somewhat on the back foot. However, the Reds did this time manage to keep their line intact right up to halftime, and the home side had to retire to the changing-room still without a try, and with only the penalty goal, awarded for the tackle on O’Brien, to show for their first forty minutes.

Huddersfield returned to the fray with even more zest, energy and determination, which had their visitors once again at full stretch for the opening stages, but, owing to the commitment to the cause of the Salford players in defence, it took the Giants a total of thirteen minutes from being up against only twelve men, before they managed to draw level, with a try from Joe Wardle, goaled by Aidan Sezer.

Nor did Salford allow that one solitary setback to impact on their overall performance and execution, thereafter.  Indeed, Marshall’s men were the only scorers, throughout the remainder of the game, courtesy of a drop goal – the winning drop goal – from Chris Atkin, sixteen minutes from the end.

The timing of this was quite cunning, in so far as we all have painful memories of Kevin Brown’s attempt being charged down in the Quarter Final of the Challenge Cup, and then Morgan Escare’s similar match-winning shot receiving the same fate the following week, against Wigan.  On Friday, Atkin had all the time in the world to measure everything up and strike the ball cleanly over the bar, unchallenged because, of course, nobody was expecting anything like that so early in the half.

They could, in fact, have scored again when awarded a penalty goal in front of the posts a few minutes later, but chose instead to take on the Giants’ defence with ball in hand.  That was an exceedingly brave decision, since it left them then exposed to an equaliser from their hosts, and so it proved, with only the intervention of the left upright preventing Sezer taking the game to Golden Point – not something you would care to have countenanced, a man short.

The sheer delight, at the final result, of everyone connected with the club, players supporters and officials, was evident to everyone, but no-one could have been more thrilled than head coach, Richard Marshall.  Despite recent disappointing losses, he has refused to panic but has held fast to his beliefs, conducting himself with great dignity in the face of considerable adversity. On Friday, he reaped the rewards from his players, who showed their solidarity with him, by committing their all to getting him the victory, upon which they will all be keen to build, in the coming weeks.

RED DEVILS IN DEPTH: HULL KR v SALFORD

Any hopes that the roasting which Warrington had administered, in the last outing for the Salford Red Devils, would prove to be the low point of their season, lasted for little more than the opening quarter of this week’s away fixture at Hull KR, after which those hopes wilted and were finally dashed by a Rovers side which soared in confidence as the game unfolded.

True, the Red Devils had the better of the opening exchanges, taking the lead after only five minutes thanks to Ken Sio latching onto Tui Lolohea’s most profitable end-of-set kick of the night, to score in the corner.  This was well deserved, coming, as it did, on the back of a period of sustained pressure on the Rovers’ line, and, although Sio was unable to convert his try, Salford were clearly the dominant team and continued to be so for the following ten minutes.

Indeed, everything they produced throughout that period had the hallmark of a team on its way to victory, dominating position and possession thanks in part to a number of favourable penalties, good kick-chases which pinned the home side in their own thirty metre area, and forcing Hull to have to drop out from between their own posts on one occasion.

Sadly, that all changed on sixteen minutes when a missed tackle caused Chris Atkin to have to chase back and halt Parcell’s progress with a magnificent try-saving tackle.  However. Salford’s number 18 then saw yellow after his ball steal on the Robins’ number 9 was deemed as a professional foul.

That was the point at which by far the majority of Super League sides, enraged by this turn of events, would have rolled up their sleeves, upped their own game, and taken their frustration and annoyance out on the opposition. However, it was KR who took back control of the arm wrestle and put two tries past Salford inside 25 minutes to take the lead.

Despite a third try being conceded before halftime, taking the score to 16-4 at the interval, the game was not totally beyond them, and supporters of any team would have expected their players to shake off the misfortunes of the first half, and begin the resumption afresh, in similar vein to how they had started the game.

To a certain extent Salford did endeavour to do so and managed to put a couple of attacks together, one of which produced the half’s only real threat to the home team’s line, when Sam Luckley charged through only to be brought to a halt just short of the line, as also was his attempted grounding of the ball.

Despite losing fullback Adam Quinlan for a dangerous kick, the hosts held on for ten minutes and celebrated their number one’s return with another three tries of their own on the scoreboard. Their confidence and prowess rose as Salford’s resistance faded, and the Robins continued to build on their lead right up to the final hooter.

Last time out, Warrington had looked virtually unstoppable, and despite the colossal score they racked up, much could be attributed to their immense skill and talent, that day.  That was far from the case, on Friday night, however, for Rovers had appeared most lacklustre in the earlier stages of the game and were there for the taking. Marshall’s men now look ahead to Round 10 against Huddersfield Giants as the perfect tonic for a response to recent defeats.
