Absolute heartbreak as missed conversion decided thriller in Super League

In a game moved forward to be a double header with the women’s clash today, Salford Red Devils Catalans Dragons in a clash of styles between two sides in the mix for the playoffs.

In the last game before the international break, a win was more important and thus a fast start was key and it came from the home side as King Vuniyayawa crashed through a tackle for the opening try of the contest.

Salford were on top and Brodie Croft kicked a 40/20 before Marc Sneyd kicked a penalty to make it 8-0.

Catalans needed a response and it came as they moved the ball wide where the ever reliable Tom Johnstone added another try in a terrific season for the English winger.

However just before the break, another English winger Joe Burgess broke clear from a 20 metre restart. However a desperate tackle from Johnstone looked like it could deny the winger only for him to get over the line just before the break and make it 14-4.

Around halftime, the emergency alert test went off and it looked like an emergency for Catalan as they went into the second behind.

However they soon found themselves further behind in the second half when Marc Sneyd kicked a penalty for a late hit to make it a 12-point lead.

Catalans needed to respond and they did as Paul Seguier grounded a grubbed kick to make it 16-10.

Then there was late drama at the very end of the game as Adam Keighran broke through to score a dramatic try that could have levelled the game.

However, he then missed the conversion giving Salford, the English side, a win on St George’s Day despite the fact they scored less tries on the day.
