Logan 100 | A breakdown of Tomkins’ 100 Salford appearances

Logan Tomkins made his 100th appearance in the 32-16 victory over Catalans Dragons on Good Friday and became just the second member of the current squad to reach the landmark behind Junior Sa’u. Following this we’ve broken down all his 100 appearances for Salford and the key stats surrounding them.
Tomkins debuted for Salford against Bradford Bulls on 11th April 2014 in a 38-24 victory. The hooker had joined the Red Devils on a temporary basis on loan from fellow Betfred Super League Wigan Warriors before the move became permanent in 2016.
Tomkins has won 45 games whilst at Salford and lost 54. Tomkins has only been involved in one draw whilst playing for Salford which came in game 6 as the Red Devils battled from behind to draw 16-16 with Hull Kingston Rovers.
Logan has scored a total of six tries for Salford with half of these coming inside his first seventeen games for the Club. Tomkins has only managed to equal this total in the 83 since. However, 50% of his tries have come against the same opposition – Leeds Rhinos; the side Logan will play his 101st Salford Red Devils game against.
Tomkins’ most recent try came against Leeds in Round Two of the 2017 Betfred Super League at the Emerald Headingley Stadium. Five of Logan’s tries have come in the Betfred Super League while try number five came against Featherstone Rovers in the 2016 Qualifiers. This is currently Tomkins’ longest run without a try for Salford – currently totalled at a run of 33 games.
Of his 100 appearances for Salford, Logan has started 80 of them at hooker while coming on from the interchange bench on 20 occasions. His longest spell without an interchange appearance was between 25th March 2016 and 21st September 2017 starting 53 games – in which he was selected – at hooker. Tomkins has never been an interchange for more than seven consecutive games.
The hookers longest win-streak with the Red Devils came last season as he was involved in five consecutive Betfred Super League victories between 19th March and 14th April. Salford would match this streak a few weeks later however this time it would be in all competitions with the third of the five wins being a 30-6 Ladbrokes Challenge Cup win over Wakefield Trinity.
Tomkins’ longest losing-streak for Salford unfortunately outweighs his winning-streak and came at the backend of the 2017 season suffering seven consecutive losses in all competitions.
Logan Tomkins has only featured in four Ladbrokes Challenge Cup matches for Salford. His first was a 20-30 loss back in the 2014 competition – just his 4th game for the Club – against Widnes. Last year he was involved in Challenge Cup wins against Hull Kingston Rovers and Wakefield Trinity before a semi-final loss – game 86 for Logan – to former Club Wigan Warriors, giving Logan a 50%-win rate in the competition for Salford.
Tomkins has also featured in two Qualifiers campaigns for the Red Devils at the end of both the 2015 and 2016 season and is an ever-present for Salford in the competition. Logan has nine wins and six losses in the Qualifiers. The infamous Million Pound Game was game 64 in the red of Salford for Tomkins.
The largest victory Logan has been involved in was a 70-16 win over Featherstone Rovers – his 61st game – in the 2016 Qualifiers – a game in which he scored, as previously mentioned. His largest defeat came at Leeds in 2015, 70-6 in his 25th game. The highest scoring match he’s been involved in totalled 87 points in game 31 as Salford beat Sheffield Eagles in the 2015 Qualifiers 53-34. The lowest scoring match was an 8-0 loss to Leeds Rhinos at the Emerald Headingley Stadium in 2016 in game 51.
Since debuting at Salford, Tomkins has featured against 18 different clubs. His most prominent opponents are Widnes Vikings whom he has faced 11 times while he has just one appearance against Halifax, Sheffield Eagles, Featherstone Rovers and Batley Bulldogs.

Factfile | Salford Red Devils vs Hull Kingston Rovers | Friday 23rd February

Ahead of tomorrow’s Betfred Super League tie with Hull Kingston Rovers at the AJ Bell Stadium we take a look at the facts behind this fixture.
Head-to-head
Both sides have had their fair share of results over the other in recent seasons however Salford come into this weekend’s game on the back of two consecutive victories against the Robins.
The Red Devils overcame their opponents in the 5th round of the 2017 Ladbrokes Challenge Cup after coming back from a 14-0 deficit to win 24-14 a game which you can read more about here.
The last time the sides met in a league fixture (of sorts) was back in the 2016 Million Pound game when Ian Watson’s side again came from behind with a miraculous late comeback which was sealed with a mammoth Gareth O’Brien drop-goal in extra-time.
But, KR did win on their last visit to the AJ Bell Stadium in Super League coming away with a 12-29 victory over the Red Devils. Tries from James Greenwood, Josh Mantellato, Thomas Minns and Ken Sio were too much for Salford who crossed twice through O’Brien and Mason Caton-Brown.
Overall in Super League, Salford have won seven of the fixtures while Hull KR have won ten with the sides drawing on one occasion.
Milestones
Salford Red Devils captain Lee Mossop – should he play – will earn his 200th career appearance.
Mossop has appeared for a host of clubs including Wigan Warriors, Paramatta Eels, Workington Town, Huddersfield Giants and Barrow Raiders before arriving at the AJ Bell Stadium. The Cumbrian forward has also represented England and the England Knights.
Red Devils 2017 top try-scorer Niall Evalds – should he play – will earn his 100th career appearance.
The versatile back has racked up an impressive 91 appearances for Salford alongside dual-registration appearances for hometown Club Halifax RLFC as well as Barrow Raiders and Oldham RLFC.
Evalds has also scored in each of Salford’s last three competitive fixtures and will be looking to make it four from four against a side whom he crossed against twice in the Million Pound Game.
Played for both
Salford centre Kris Welham was a mainstay at KCOM Craven Park playing for the Robins for ten seasons and scoring over 100 tries. Welham has continued to score regularly for Salford including scoring in both Betfred Super League games so far in 2018.
There are a handful of former Salford players in Tim Sheens’ squad including winger Justin Carney. Jordan Walne also joined the Robins directly from Salford this off-season while Tommy Lee, Connor Williams and Lee Jewitt have all played at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Flashback | Salford Red Devils 24-14 Hull Kingston Rovers

In this week’s Flashback piece we take a look back to the last meeting between Salford Red Devils and Hull Kingston Rovers as Ian Watson’s men progressed to the quarter-finals of the 2017 Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.
Despite the visitors racing into a 14-0 lead Salford managed to fightback scoring 24 unanswered points at the AJ Bell Stadium to move on to the last eight of the competition.
Hooker Shaun Lunt crossed for two tries in quick succession alongside two conversions plus a penalty goal from Jamie Ellis opened up an early lead for the Robins.
However, Salford soon hit back as Ryan Lannon narrowed the gap just prior to the interval as he latched onto a clever kick from Michael Dobson.
And it was the Red Devils who came back out on the front foot as – in similar fashion to KR in the first half – they grabbed two tries in a short period.
Prop-forward Craig Kopczak powered his way over before Kriss Brining managed to edge the hosts ahead for the first time in the game.
Ben Murdoch-Masila crashed over for Salford’s fourth of the evening to pull victory even closer which was furthered by Michael Dobson retaining his 100% record with the boot.
Salford Red Devils Head Coach, Ian Watson, said: “At half-time, we just spoke honestly as a group.
“We knew the standards they were reaching in the first half didn’t measure up to what we expect. We allowed Hull KR to dictate the speed of the game.
“We also spoke about us being soft in defence. They were dominating the ruck and getting up too quickly. We had to stop that and fortunately for us we did.”

Kriss Brining | “It’s really good and I’m enjoying it”

Last night Salford Red Devils hooker Kriss Brining conducted the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup third round draw alongside St Helens’ Alex Walmsley live on the BBC Sport website
Brining drew his former team York away at Askam ARLFC in a tie which will be played on the weekend of the 24th/25th February.
Speaking on BBC Sport’s website to Dave Woods, Brining said: “Yeah, I came through the York City Knights system and played there from when I was about thirteen.
“I was similar to Alex [Walmsley] I went to uni and got a degree and then was lucky enough to get picked up.
“I don’t think they’ll be happy I’ve drawn them away but I think they’ll be happy enough with the tie and hopefully they can get through to the next round.”
York City Knights will be looking to push for promotion to the Betfred Championship this season and begin their campaign with a massive game as they host Bradford Bulls.
“I think Bradford have sold quite a few I’ve seen on Twitter and other social media and I think there really looking for a big crowd so good luck to them.
“They’ve signed really well in the off-season and you know James Ford’s put a real good squad together.”
Brining has missed the start of the season with a small knock but is confident he’ll continue to develop after a fantastic debut season in the Betfred Super League.
Brining said: “I was happy with last year and got a lot of learning to do still but yeah it’s really good and I’m enjoying it.”
