MATCH REPORT | SALFORD RED DEVILS 4-35 HULL FC | SATURDAY 3RD APRIL

Salford Red Devils fell to a Round 2 defeat against Hull FC in the Betfred Super League this afternoon. 

After an opening exchange that saw both sides have promising spells, the Black and Whites opened the scoring after 20 minutes, Andre Savelio sliding over down the right.

A penalty goal converted by Marc Sneyd and another try down the right from Hull, this time through Josh Reynolds, gave Hull a 14-0 lead at the interval.

Halftime: Salford Red Devils 0-14 Hull FC

Five minutes into the second forty, Reynolds doubled his try tally for the afternoon but this time grounded the ball behind the sticks to gift Sneyd a simple conversion. 

Josh Griffin extended Hull’s lead five minutes later, getting onto the end of a kick from Adam Swift and grounding the ball.

Salford responded with a try of our own in the 58th minute through Ken Sio, who strolled over after some neat passing down the right flank that was capped with some quick hands from Kallum Watkins to set Sio up.

Jake Connor converted a penalty goal five minutes later for the Black and Whites and also scored a drop-goal shortly afterwards before Cameron Scott went over with four minutes to go for Hull’s fifth and final try of the afternoon.

Marshall – “We are confident in what we can produce this week”

Salford Red Devils head coach Richard Marshall is confident his side can pick up the win against Hull FC on Saturday but is well aware of the dangers the Black and Whites pose. 

The Red Devils face off against Brett Hodgson’s men in Round 2 of the Betfred Super League and Marshall expects a tough test on Saturday afternoon.

“I thought they were really good against Huddersfield. It looked like the individuals had really clicked already. Obviously, it’s a new coach and quite a few new players there, so they will be coming off a good performance, a good result.

“Our individuals have looked at some of the areas that we want to improve on collectively as a team. We think if we can keep hold of the ball for longer and we don’t make them errors, we’ll be able to sustain some pressure and put Hull under pressure with our kicking game.”

The head coach is also relishing a selection headache, with a 30-man squad all competing for positions.

Marshall added: “Everybody’s on their toes within our squad.

“It makes my job at bit more enviable in picking a 17 each and every week.”

With all Round 2 fixtures across the Easter Weekend dedicated to Mose Masoe, the former Hull Kingston Rovers forward who suffered a life-changing spinal injury in 2020, Marshall is proud of how the entire rugby community has come together to support the Samoan.

“That’s the beauty of our game and our sport. As a sport, our community focus and looking after each and every individual who has played the field, officiated, coached, we always have a really good affinity for that and that’s why this round will be so important.

“I think we always come together at times when players are in need and that is the beauty of our sport. We’ll certainly be supporting that, as we do with everything else that goes on in our game.”

Salford’s clash with Hull FC kicks off at 12:15pm on Saturday 3 April at the Totally Wicked Stadium and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Taylor all set for Hull but expects tough test

Salford Red Devils’ new number 13 Elijah Taylor is looking forward to the clash with Hull FC on Saturday but is expecting a tough battle with the Black and Whites in Round 2 of the Betfred Super League.

The New Zealand international, who joined from NRL’s Wests Tigers in December, made his Betfred Super League debut last Friday in the 29-6 defeat to St. Helens in Round 1.

However, despite the loss, Taylor was proud to make his debut for the Red Devils, which he capped with a Man of the Match performance.

Taylor said: “I’m disappointed with the result obviously. We worked extremely hard over the last 12 weeks, but it was good to play Super League.

“I have always watched it since I started my career when I was 13 years old. I used to watch it when I was a little kid and to finally play my first game was pretty cool.”

Looking ahead to Saturday’s game against Hull FC, Taylor is expecting a tough test from Brett Hodgson’s men.

“I expect another physical game, I know a lot of players who are in that squad.

“They’ll be up for the game, they came off a good win against Huddersfield. So, we’ll be doing our work during the week to hopefully get it over them this week.”

With Salford reaching two major finals in the last two years, continuing to compete for silverware is the 31-year-old’s target now as a Red Devil as well as featuring for New Zealand in this year’s World Cup.

“Playing finals footy is definitely one of the goals and playing for the Kiwis at the end of the year, that is another of my goals.

I am just going to start off with this week, work as hard as I can, train as hard as I can and play my best football for Salford.”

BETFRED SUPER LEAGUE ROUND 2 FIXTURE ANNOUNCED

Salford Red Devils will face off against Hull FC over the Easter weekend in Round 2 of the 2021 Betfred Super League. 

The behind-closed-doors game will be contested at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Saturday 3rd April and will be one of six matches that weekend to be shown live on Sky Sports.

The Easter weekend fixtures will be in support of Mose Masoe, with full details on how fans can get behind Masoe in showing their support closer to the start of the season.

Super League Executive Chairman, Robert Elstone said: “Mose Masoe’s remarkable spirit and determination provides inspiration for all us.

“As he moves into the next phase of his life and continues his rehabilitation, it is fitting that Super League clubs, players and fans thank Mose for everything he has given to the game, and help support him and his family in the future.”

The “traditional” Easter weekend fixtures will be pushed back to a later stage of the season in the hope that fans will then be able to watch them in person.

The full fixture list for the 2021 Betfred Super League season will be released on 26th February.

Looking ahead to the Round 2 fixture, Salford did the double over the Black & Whites in the league in 2020 and will be hoping to carry that record over into the new season.

MATCH PREVIEW | SALFORD RED DEVILS V HULL FC | SUNDAY 7TH APRIL

Salford Red Devils host Hull FC at the AJ Bell Stadium, celebrating ‘Salford Health Day’ in partnership with AJ Bell Group.

Last Time out

Salford showed a spirited attacking mentality last Sunday when they came up against Wakefield Trinity at the Mobile Rocket Stadium, with tries from Niall Evalds, Kris Welham, Derrell Olpherts and Jackson Hastings.
However, the Red Devils’ defence failed to hold off in the first half resulting in a 24-10 advantage to the home side at half-time.
Despite two tries in the second half of the game from Olpherts and Hastings, Salford fell to a 33-22 defeat leaving them sitting sixth in the table ahead of today’s clash against Hull FC.


Hull FC also suffered a heavy 12-63 home defeat against Warrington Wolves last Friday with their only two tries coming from Albert Kelly and Jordan Lane.
After allowing Warrington’s Blake Austin to score a hat-trick before half-time, Hull conceded 11 tries at full-time with Austin (4, DK), Josh Charnley (3), Tom Lineham (2), Daryl Clark (1) and Ben Murdock Masila (1) all going over and Stefan Ratchford kicking nine conversions.
 

Form

Since their 0-46 victory over Catalan Dragons in early March, Salford have suffered three losses in a row to Castleford Tigers, Wigan Warriors and Wakefield Trinity.
However, the Red Devils have shown a spirited performance in recent games, scoring at least four tries in their past five games.
With Salford and Hull FC sitting at sixth and seventh place in the table at eight points each, both teams will be looking for a reaction in today’s meeting that offers the opportunity for either team to climb up the table.

Salford retain Jansin Turgut

Salford Red Devils are pleased to confirm the re-signing of Jansin Turgut following a successful short-term stint with the Club at the end of the 2018 season.
Turgut spent time with Hull FC between 2015 and 2018 as well as enjoying loan spells with Featherstone Rovers and Doncaster RLFC before joining the Red Devils.
Salford Red Devils Head Coach, Ian Watson, said: “Jansin is a young middle with Betfred Super League experience who when coming in at The Qualifiers stage last year showed glimpses of his versatility, ability & aggression.
“Jansin is also a former England Academy captain who possesses great potential and hopefully he can fulfil that potential here at Salford Red Devils. Jansin brings an extra level of competition to our squad & is determined to position himself as a starting player.”
Salford Red Devils Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease, said: “We’re really pleased to get Jansin over the line for at least another season.
“Jansin came in for the closing stages of the 2018 season and really bolstered our squad and made a great impression when he featured against London and Leeds. He showed a desire, attitude and hunger to perform for the Club which made us want to keep him on for the 2019 season.
“He adds some competition for places in our forwards and we’re hoping he is the first of a few more signings in the middles.”
Turgut will link up with the Red Devils on the first day of pre-season tomorrow.
