Paul Rowley warns Super League rivals are “a good side” despite tough start to the season

Salford Red Devils will likely have been the happiest team coming out of Round Four.

They won a game that many saw as a 50-50 clash 60-14 as they thrashed Hull FC in their own back yard last Saturday.

That made it two wins from four to start the season and snapped a two-game losing streak.

Now they will be looking to make it two wins on the spin as they take on Wakefield Trinity come Sunday and ahead of the game Paul Rowley has reflected on the win suggesting he saw such an attacking display on the cards if the Red Devils could sort out the other areas of their performance.

He said:

“I think we’ve seen bits of Saturday’s performance in every game, but we had more possession this time and restricted Hull to just 14 points.”

There were many key players in that win but perhaps one who went unnoticed was Chris Atkin.

Rowley singled him out for praise: “He is so valuable to the team, well respected by all his teammates.”

He also warned that opponents on Sunday Wakefield won’t be an easy win warning that they are “a good side”:

“They’ve been in a few arm wrestles. They’ve got a good side, with some really good athletes.”

The Red Devils are looking to build on a superb 2022 season but have so far been a mixed bag unlike how they ended last season.

But a win here would leave them on six points which after five games is an admirable amount.
