Paul Rowley gives his take on Leeds players’ bust up as Salford staff witnessed altercation

Salford Red Devils coach Paul Rowley speaks to Sky Sports, and is a target for Hull FC.

Last week Salford Red Devils came up with an impressive win away at Leeds Rhinos despite missing some key players and losing star fullback Ryan Brierley in the first half.

Coach Paul Rowley was glad to be able to deliver a win for the fans, only their third win there in Super League history.

“I think it was the fourth win there in 63 years so the fans have had some hardship at Headingley for quite some time so it was nice for them more than anything,” he said on BBC Five Live.

Sadly coming out of the game the narrative was overshadowed by reports of a bust up in the tunnel between Leeds stars Tom Holroyd and Harry Newman.

These were confirmed by Rohan Smith yesterday and Rowley has now had his say on the matter:

“I was in and around that area but I’d be lying if I said I witnessed anything there but obviously some of our people were talking about it and I’ve read a little bit. That’s for them.

“As always there’s a time and a place but it depends how that comes about and what caused it.

“If it’s for the greater good and not one man throwing toys out of the pram then yeah there’s no harm in that.

“It just shows passion and shows that people care but like I said there’s a time and a place and you’ve got to learn to do it at the appropriate time and in the appropriate manner.”
