“Myler and Gale should have been sent off” – Richard Marshall criticises leniency following mass brawl

Salford’s Richard Marshall has had his own say on the events that unfolded early on in his side’s 38-12 defeat to Leeds this afternoon.

Konrad Hurrell was knocked out by a Lee Mossop punch after the former appeared to run at the Salford prop. That sparked a mass brawl, but Marshall believed his side were given a “raw deal”.

“At times we were ill-disciplined. It was a bit of a mess of a game, and getting a man sent off again – and one sin-binned – has unravelled us,” Marshall said.

“We need to be defending with 13 players and our discipline has to improve but it (Mossop’s punch) was an act of self defence in my opinion.

“If Konrad Hurrell just gets on with the game, then we’re not sat here having these conversations.

“If we’re working on the same basis then Myler and Gale should have been sent off – they threw punches at Ryan Lannon.

“I’m not making excuses, you’ve got to deal with what’s in front of you.

“We are having it tough but we’ve got to tow the line and Lannon and Mossop did in my opinion.

“We can only take control of what we do, but there’s got to be consistency.

“We’re getting a bit of a raw deal at the moment, but we’ve got to hold our hands up, and say that it (ill-discipline) puts us under pressure. It’s about a collective team effort.
