Salford coach Iestyn Harris was delighted with the manner of his team’s Easter Monday win over Wigan.
The Warriors went into the game at the AJ Bell on the back of fine win over St Helens, but the Red Devils beat them 24-18.
That win was Salford’s first over Wigan in 17 attempts, and saw the Red Devils leap over the Warriors into third place in the Super League table.
“I’m very pleased because Wigan are a champion team,” Harris told his club’s official website.
“We knew it would be difficult but the quality of the game was really high.
“It’s the first time we have really challenged a top-four side physically and we have now taken nine wins from 11 at home.”
