Kyle Amor says there was a stray elbow in build up to key Salford try

Salford Red Devils are leading 12-0 at the home of the Champions.

They have stood up to the pressure put on them from Super League and World Champions St Helens.

In a rematch of last year’s semi-final between the two, Saints have had the majority of possession but the Red Devils struck first as Oliver Partington fed King Vuniyayawa a short ball with the former Leeds Rhinos prop tearing through. He then found support inside from Brodie Croft who just about finished the try under the sticks despite an effort from Tee Ritson.

Partington started that move and he was key in a defensive moments as he mopped up a grubber kick behind the posts but after that he and James Bell of St Helens had a bit of an altercation.

Salford then doubled their money with a lovely try down the right with Kallum Watkins involved teeing up Ryan Brierley.

However, it came after Saints could have had a penalty when Marc Sneyd got in the way of Jonny Lomax and in the mind of Kyle Amor there was a hint of a stray elbow.

“It is a brilliant try on that right side, Croft, Watkins, Brierley all combining,” Amor said of the try.

“Saints might feel that they are hard done by,” he went on, “But on that evidence it looks like Marc Sneyd steps in and lifts his elbow up slightly on Jonny Lomax and three and four plays later Croft takes it to the line and Ben Davies is found ball watching and Salford at the moment can’t stop scoring.”
