Salford Red Devils are still fighting for the play-offs with Warrington Wolves, Leeds Rhinos, Hull FC, Hull KR and Huddersfield Giants and they helped their cause with a win over Wakefield Trinity on Friday.
The Red Devils were lead by Ryan Brierley who was superb as was Ken Sio in a difficult game for all involved.
After the game, Rowley reflected on the game saying:
“It’s one of them, get yourself home, two points, done. Not overly looking forward to watching it over again, might just get in and make sure everybody’s fit and healthy and grab a breakfast. I don’t think there’ll be much learning from that one.”
He also revealed an injury for Kallum Watkins with the former Leeds skipper suffering a knee injury:
“Yeah, we brought him off, we got him off pretty early but there’s a knee problem in there so that’ll be going through the process now, just checking, cross fingers that he’ll be okay.
“It didn’t seem too bad but until you get people scanned you don’t know, so yeah we’ll certainly cross our fingers with that one.”
But it was Ken Sio who caught the eye with Rowley saying:
“I’m glad you mentioned Ken because for me I thought he was best play on the field.
“I thought everything he did was of a really high quality and I think today was just another example of how he’s been performing week in and week out, probably for the last three or four weeks where he’s been performing to a really high standard.
“He’s kept his head down, he’s working hard and he is quality and has provided quality so in a game without many shining stars, I thought Ken was definitely one of those. So to answer your question, he’s been very important.
“I’m pleased for him today, he got his 100th appearance for Salford. Last week he got his 100th try. So, yeah, he’s good today. I thought his performance was worthy of the milestone of 100 as well and everybody was pleased for him.”
He was asked ‘He’s off contract at the end of the season as far as we know, I image that’s one you’ll be hoping to get ticked off’
And Rowley said: “I’ve got no dramas with Ken, he’ll be staying with us so it’s not even a concern.”
