Manchester Evening News - - SPORT - By TOM BRAMWELL @MENS­ports

SAL­FORD’S slen­der Su­per League play-off hopes were ended with a thump­ing 44-2 de­feat against Leeds at Head­in­g­ley last night.

The Red Devils ended their eight-game los­ing run in em­phatic fash­ion against Hud­der­s­field last week but their sea­son is over af­ter they were blown away by a Rhi­nos side al­ready guar­an­teed a home semi-fi­nal.

Vet­er­ans Rob Bur­row and Danny McGuire gave the Rhi­nos fans a mo­ment to savour be­fore they both de­part at the end of the sea­son.

Bur­row made a dart­ing break from dummy half and McGuire was in sup­port to fin­ish as Leeds took a firm grip on the match in the first half.

Liam Sut­cliffe and Tom Briscoe scored ei­ther side of McGuire’s try to give the Rhi­nos a 16-2 half-time lead af­ter they had gone be­hind to Gareth O’Brien’s early penalty.

Matt Par­cell helped him­self to a dou­ble off the bench to take his try tally for the year to 19 while Adam Cuth­bert­son, An­thony Mul­lally and Brett Fer­res also crossed as Leeds made it 10 straight home wins over Sal­ford in style.

Mean­while in the Cham­pi­onship to­day Swin­ton Lions travel to Toulouse. Old­ham, who are al­most cer­tain to be rel­e­gated, face Dews­bury to­mor­row while Rochdale travel to Brad­ford Bulls.
