St Helens star “lucky” after “foul play” could have “busted” Salford man’s ankle say pundits

Salford Red Devils have lost Shane Wright to injury.

It came as Matty Lees caught him high as they contested a loose ball and after which Mark Wilson remarked: “Salford fans are not happy.”

Kyle Amor meanwhile noted that it perhaps evened out an earlier decision but said Lees was lucky to not receive a card:

“Sometimes these things even themselves out. Saints fans will not be happy about Jonny Lomax potentially being taken out before a try at the other end and Matty Lees is quite lucky there as well.”

Wilson meanwhile said that Wright was lucky it wasn’t a more serious injury describing it as foul play:

“As well, Shane Wright is incredibly lucky because another centimetre or so that ankle could have been busted.

“He is in a bad way anyway but it could have been a whole lot worse.

“Salford fans are not happy because there looked to be a bit of foul play in there.”

Amor did defend Lees noting it was a fraction of a second:

“I think Matty Lees is trying to advance on the ball you are talking fractions of a second.”
