Angry fans claim Leeds star “got what was coming to him” – How social media reacted to Leeds’ win over Salford

Yesterday, Leeds claimed their second consecutive win even if they came a month apart. It’s the first time Leeds have tied back-to-back wins together this season and has given them cause to be optimistic as the season unfolds. As for Salford, aside from their gutsy win over Huddersfield last week, they remain in a difficult run of form that could take some turning round.

That’s how I saw the game anyway, but what was social media’s take.

Well the big talking point was of course the altercation between Konrad Hurrell and Lee Mossop which led to Mossop and Bodene Thompson receiving red cards whilst Hurrell was knocked out cold and unable to continue. Salford fans felt Hurrell deserved the hit.

That said, perhaps one Salford fan best summed it up by laying blame at all members of the brawl.

To Hurrell’s credit, he made light of the situation with this comical tweet.

Despite Hurrell’s absence, Leeds still got the job done and in style too. There are huge questions over whether Leeds will re-sign the Tongan centre for next year. However, after he went off the field, Leeds’ other centre stole the show as Tom Briscoe continues to surprise people in the role. Some feel he could even replace Hurrell in the position moving forward.

In fact, it was a day where Leeds’ unsung heroes shone. Alex Mellor continued his brilliant campaign whilst Tom Holroyd returned from injury with a bang.

However, Leeds fans were unanimous over who they felt was the man of the match.

It’s hard to argue with the assessment that Myler was the best player on the pitch with two tries, two assists and plenty of positive contributions throughout the game. He could very well be Leeds’ most important player given the attacking fluidity he offers from fullback. Rhinos fans were very quick to deem him their best player.

He wasn’t alone however in the way he tormented Salford. He and Luke Gale combined masterfully again and again leaving Leeds fans ruing the fact the pair are in the twilight of their careers.
