Harlequins 18-18 Salford City Reds

Much like last week against Leeds Rhinos, the Reds were left to rue a poor start to the game, conceding three tries in the opening minutes that seemed to signal that a one-sided game was in the offing.

Tyrone Smith got the scoring underway off the back of a cross-field kick from Danny Orr, and Scott Hill helped Chris Melling and Paul Sykes to grab the second and third touch downs.

But Salford were able to get themselves back into the game before the break, Jon Wilshere taking advantage of a smart pass from Simon Finnegan to score, before setting up Luke Robinson’s touch down right on half time.

But after the half-time interval it was the Quins who got on the scoresheet first, Julien Rinaldi escaping a Robinson tackle to get over the try line.

This could have proved the difference between the two sides, before Andy Coley touched down to put Salford back in touching difference, and Michael Korkidis’ scored to drawl level.

David Hodgson had the chance to steal the win for the visitors, but his conversion attempt drifted wide of the posts to ensure that both sides got a share of the points.
