Ian Watson confirms 19-man squad for trip to Leeds

Ian Watson has named his 19-man squad for the Red Devils trip to Headingley to take on Leeds Rhinos on Friday night.
George Griffin returns to the 19-man squad after suffering from a knock sustained last week. Daniel Murray also enters the fray after not featuring since the defeat to Castleford in early August. Olsi Krasniqi is left out of the squad for Friday night’s game.
Greg Johnson was named in last week’s squad but had to pull out through with a hip injury late in the week which means he drops from this week’s 19-man squad. Jake Bibby is likely to start on the wing again after scoring a try last weekend against Huddersfield.
Gareth O’Brien moved into the halves last week and looks to be set to partner Robert Lui again with both Michael Dobson and Todd Carney absent from the 19-man squad.
Tickets are also available for our final home game of the 2017 season against St Helens on Thursday 21st September and are available over the phone, at the club ticket office and online here. Season ticket holders are reminded that their season tickets are valid for all Super 8s home games but are encouraged to look at our hospitality deal for season ticket holders against Saints.

Salford Red Devils 52-14 Huddersfield Giants

The Red Devils returned to winning ways with a dominant nine-try display against Huddersfield at the AJ Bell Stadium.
Kris Welham and Manu Vatuvei both crossed for braces while Tyrone McCarthy, Niall Evalds, Jake Bibby, Ben Murdoch-Masila and Josh Jones also got themselves on the scoresheet.
Ian Watson’s men got off to the perfect start as Welham latched onto a neat kick from Robert Lui to open the try-scoring on a fruitful afternoon for the Red Devils. Gareth O’Brien had kicked a penalty goal in the opening minutes to get the scoreboard ticking.
After scoring his first Super League try for Salford last weekend McCarthy made it two in two games at the AJ Bell Stadium forcing his way over from close-range. Fellow mid-season signing Vatuvei powered his way over shortly after scoring his first out wide.
Murdoch-Masila was a constant thorn in the Giants side and his quick hands put centre Welham over the line for his second. Salford made it two tries in as many minutes as Evalds was the beneficiary of some smart link-up play between Lui and Murdoch-Masila.
Jermaine McGillvary scored in the final minute of the first half however the Red Devils went into the break with a 26-point lead.
However, any chance of a Giants fightback was stopped in the opening minute of the second half as Vatuvei managed to score following Junior Sa’u’s pass. Jake Bibby, who was a late replacement for Greg Johnson, scored with an acrobatic finish in the corner shortly after.
Oliver Roberts managed to spin his way over but it didn’t slow down the Red Devils dominance as O’Brien added another penalty goal before Murdoch-Masila took three defenders over the line with him.
With five minutes remaining Jones rounded off the Salford scoring as he burrowed over after several offloads. Ryan Hinchcliffe scored late on for the Giants but it was a comfortable victory for the Red Devils.
Red Devils: Evalds, Bibby, Welham, Sa’u, Vatuvei; Lui, O’Brien; Kopczak, Tomkins, Hauraki, Murdoch-Masila, Jones, McCarthy. Interchanges: A.Walne, Brining, Lannon, J. Walne.
Giants: Rankin, McGillvary, Mellor, Turner, Ormsby; Gaskell, Brough; Ikahihifo, Leeming, Ta’ai, Roberts, Ferguson, Hinchcliffe. Interchanges: O’Brien, Rapira, Lawrence, Clough.

Ian Watson – "It will make them better players going forward"

Red Devils boss Ian Watson feels that his young players have stepped up recently and are improving every week.
Salford have struggled with injuries as of late with Mark Flanagan and Lama Tasi out for the season while others have picked up knocks but Watson is pleased with the younger squad members who’ve stepped in.
Watson said: “There are some positives to take from our recent struggles and one of those is definitely the young lads getting some game time.
“Jake Bibby, Ryan Lannon, Daniel Murray have all been great when they’ve stepped in.
“Kriss Brining is back in for us now and he made an impact off the bench against Castleford which was good.
“This experience of playing the top teams at this level of a competition is very intense and it will make them better players going forward.
“Obviously, it’s tough for us at the moment but the young guys in the team are getting their chance and improving every week and next year the squad will be a lot stronger for it.
“Look at Wakefield, for example, they struggled in the Super 8s last season but have benefitted from it this season and are real top four contenders along with ourselves and a handful of other teams.
“All of these players get experience at this level puts us in a better position when we do get more of our senior players back.
“But, the big thing is this year and what we’ve still got left to play for.
“We’ve got a chance of reaching another semi-final with a top four finish and then there’s always the chance of Old Trafford and the Grand Final if we get in that top four.”
Fans are reminded that tickets are now on sale for all Red Devils Super 8s home games against Wakefield, Huddersfield and St Helens. Tickets are also still on sale for Wigan away on Friday night. Supporters are also reminded that their season tickets are valid for all Super 8s home fixtures.
