Salford Run Riot Against Dragons


Catalans would spend most of the opening five minutes camped down by the Red Devils line, Catalans handling errors costing them once more, ill discipline would march Salford down the field to score the opening try, the Red Devils sending it through the hand before Jake Bibby touching down, Robert Lui adding the extras to put Salford out to a 6-0 lead. 

Another Catalans penalty would put the Red Devils in position to register more points, Sam Moa with the high shot. Salford taking full advantage of the field position, Robert Lui breaking the line before setting Niall Evalds away to slide in under the sticks, Lui converting the kick to give Salford a 12-0 lead after 12 minutes. 



Salford would be temporarily reduced to 12 mean, Weller Hauraki put in the bin and giving Catalans a lifeline back into this game. Lama Tasi would answer the call to arms, flying out the line with a huge hit and forcing the ball loose to give Salford possession on their own 20 metre line.

After 25 minutes of play Catalans would make the scoresheet, Yaha claiming the ball from a Tony Gigot kick to put the Dragons back in the game, Gigot unable to convert the extras taking the score to 12-4 with 15 minutes left of the half to play. 

The fairly uneventful first half would draw to an end in the middle of the field with Salford in possession. Salford would force the agenda at the start of the second half, getting two repeat sets but unable to register points for their efforts. Greg Johnson would finish off a piece of wonderful attacking. Flanagan with the initial break, Nakubuwai with a fantastic offload, Wood for Lui and Lui for Johnson who would put down to score in the corner, Robert Lui once more on hand to add the extras, 18-4 Salford. 

Catalans would barely touch the ball for the next 10 minutes, but when they did they would register their second try of the game, a loose pass would be snatched out of the air by Yaha who would race 90 metres downfield to grab his second of the game, Gigot converting to make it 18-10. Robert Lui would take the easy two points on offer from a penalty making it 20-10 to Salford.

With 10 minutes to play Josh Jones would find himself on the end of a very good line move and forcing his way between two defenders to as good as secure the win for Salford, Robert Lui adding the extras again to send Salford out to a 26-10 lead.

Kris Welham would grab the final Salford points of the game with 6 minutes left to play, somehow grounding the ball despite the best efforts of 3 Dragons around him, Lui once more slotting the kick to give the Red Devils a 32-10 lead.

Greg Bird would get a late consolation try for their efforts, the veteran forward powering over at close range to lower the losing margin, Gigot converting to see the game out as Salford claim their second consecutive victory of the season. 32-16 Salford.
