Harris ready for more challenges with Salford

Salford coach Iestyn Harris is pleased to see his club climb the Super League table to fourth place, after an impressive win over Widnes on Thursday evening.

The Red Devils won the game 36-8, but Harris knows that more tough tests are on the immediate horizon.

“It’s early, isn’t it, but you’d rather be fourth than 12th,” Harris said, according to his club’s official website.

“We’ve some tough challenges around the corner – we’ve got Huddersfield, Wigan and Leeds in a short space of time – and it will show where we are.

“We’ve just got to try and improve each week. Our home form has been pretty good, it’s just about getting a few more on our travels.”

The work ethic of his squad also impressed Harries, who was pleased with the way his team played in defence.

“I thought we worked extremely hard for each other, better than we’ve done so far this season,” he added.

“They looked like they were enjoying it at the back end of the game and that’s important. You’ve got to enjoy rugby to be at your best and I thought we enjoyed it today.

“It was pleasing to be very solid defensively because that’s something we’ve been working hard on.

“I thought there some good performances from our new players. Dobbo (Michael Dobson) had his best game by far – his relationship with Rangi (Chase) is going to develop – and I thought Kevin (Locke) had his best game for the club. He wanted to get the ball in his hands and he was terrific.”
