Logan Tomkins reaction – "We got caught chasing the game"

Red Devils hooker Logan Tomkins was ‘disappointed’ with the sides performance at Hull FC and felt Salford got caught chasing the game.
Tomkins, sponsored by Dr Terry Thorne, said: “I thought we were well off in the second half.
“The first half wasn’t great either but we managed to stick with it and keep things close but the second half we lost our way and got caught chasing the game.
“This led to us putting a lot of ball down and we didn’t play to our game plan and instead started playing erratic rugby which is disappointing.
“The start to the second half wasn’t great I messed up with one tackle and that led to a try and the other try was a soft one as well.
“We pushed the odd ball that we shouldn’t have pushed and it led to some stupid knock-ons and we lost a lot of territory and ball possession.
“New personnel does affect the team but not in a detrimental way we tried to force the ball when we should have stuck in the arm wrestle and tried to improve our completion rate.”
However, Tomkins is looking forward to a ‘big challenge’ next weekend against league leaders Castleford Tigers the AJ Bell Stadium.
“We’re obviously on a bit of a bad streak at the moment,” Tomkins said.
He added: “It’s probably good that we’ve got Castleford next because you can’t help but get up for games like that and we’re going to have to start at 100%.
“We don’t want to make a habit of losing every week and we need to turn it around as soon as possible.”
Next up for Ian Watson’s men are league leaders Castleford Tigers on Friday 11th August at the AJ Bell Stadium. Fans can still purchase tickets through the club ticket office, over the phone or online via the club website.

Ian Watson reaction – "Two different halves"

Ian Watson described his sides 32-14 defeat in their Super 8s opener against Hull FC as a game of two halves and feels early stages of the second half changed the game.
Watson said: “I thought we started the game pretty but the first half and second half were two different games all together for us.
“First half we were pretty good to be fair and the second half we just turned over too much ball.
“We were defending too much and we turned into the team we saw at the start of last season and we didn’t understand what to do when you find yourself under the pump.
“We’ll need to look at that because we don’t want to fall back into the team that we were last season.”
The Red Devils went into the break level with Hull following tries from Manu Vatuvei, Niall Evalds and Robert Lui but a slow start to the second half cost Salford.
Watson said: “We’d kind of turned the game a little bit obviously they got the penalty on half-time which made it level pegging.
“We felt like the first 15 minutes of the second half was going to be key and we said Hull FC would come strong in the first 15 minutes and it was about how we controlled that period.
“I think it was Niall Evalds who almost scored in the first few minutes of the half but we didn’t take our chance.
“Hull had some relentless pressure on our goal line and we didn’t handle our goal line defence as well as we should have done.”
