Salford Red Devils Head Coach Ian Watson believes the scoreline shouldn’t have been as bad as it was, following their 48-8 defeat against St Helens on Friday.
They did go in front, after a Tui Lolohea penalty, but from there it was really all St Helens. All they could muster after that was a Ken Sio try.
He said: “If we’re being truly honest about the situation, I thought we were really good for a certain part of the game, but it should never have gotten beyond 30-odd points. At that point, its a lesson. You learn.
“When it starts getting out to 40-50, then it starts to turn into a little bit of an embarrassment.”
Watson will be hoping for a reaction when Salford welcome Super League new boys Toronto Wolfpack to the AJ Bell Stadium next Saturday.
