Salford Red Devils Head Coach Richard Marshall has bemoaned his side’s lack of discipline during their 16-6 defeat against Wigan Warriors.
They had two men sent to the sin bin over the course of the match. Josh Johnson was sent to the sin bin, along with Morgan Smithies after an altercation, and Ata Hingano was also sent for 10 minutes after a high tackle.
Marshall believed the period when they played 12 against 13 cost them.
He said: “There was that 10 minute period where we gave away the high tackle away and Ata went off. The game was too hard after that.
“We did a lot of work in the first half, and we built really well. We took our opportunities and nailed the game plan we set out in the week.
“It was the story of our season. It’s an area we have to address as a club, because it did cost us.”
