Richard Marshall blasts “shambolic” Salford

Salford went down 62-18 at home to Warrington and head coach Richard Marshall was bitterly disappointed with his side’s efforts.

“We were way off and very disappointing; Warrington were white hot and we were stone cold,” Marshall said.

“We got caught in the headlights at the start, we went 18 points down and then we managed to get a foothold in the game, but then conceded before half-time.

“We couldn’t complete a couple of sets in the second-half and Warrington were very clinical, but it’s a tough one to take – we’re busted mentally and physically.”

Marshall also confirmed that his side suffered three more injuries.

“I don’t think we’d be able to put a team out next week; Kallum Watkins has a knee injury, Harvey Livett with his hamstring and Morgan Escare rolled his ankle.

“We already had about ten players out with injury and suspension, but there are no excuses – we’re doing it tough at the same time, but to get beat at home by 60 odd points is nothing short of shambolic.”

The Red Devils boss was happy with how two of his forwards performed.

“I was really happy with Sam Luckley; he had a real go for us and Jack Wells was great as well.

“He’s been learning some tough lessons in the middle and he will come out of this knowing what it’s like to play in Super League week in and week out.

“As a group we’ve got to do some soul searching there and get into each other a bit and find the reason why it’s not working at the minute.”
