Reds end poor away run

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

SAL­FORD ended 11 months of away­day mis­ery with a 30-12 Bet­fred Su­per League win at Hud­der­s­field Gi­ants, but head coach Ian Wat­son in­sisted the run had not con­cerned him.

The Red Devils scored five tries while the Gi­ants ended with 12 men due to cap­tain Danny Brough’s late red card.

“We are con­fi­dent wher­ever we play,” said Wat­son.

“We have met some good teams away from home in this early part of the sea­son.

“In those game we have been re­ally com­pet­i­tive so that wasn’t a prob­lem.

“But I sup­pose it is nice to get that mon­key off our back. Other than that we weren’t both­ered.

“We started well but got a bit scrappy where we didn’t fin­ish our sets in the first half.

“But in the sec­ond half we got that com­po­sure back.

“Even when Hud­der­s­field had a pur­ple patch at­tack­ing our goal line, we de­fended well and fronted up.

“We weath­ered the storm and knew it was go­ing to turn at some point.

“When it did we got the re­wards at the back end.”

Two tries from Jake Bibby and one apiece from Ben Nakubuwai, Weller Hau­raki and Mark Flana­gan, along with five goals from Rob Lui, se­cured a win which lifts Sal­ford into the top eight.

Innes Se­nior and Ol­lie Roberts crossed for the Gi­ants while Brough kicked two goals for Chris Thor­man’s side.
