Lee wants more team spirit from Salford

Salford skipper Tommy Lee wants to see a more unified team spirit at the Red Devils this season, and an improved work ethic too.

Salford struggled to fulfill their potential last season, and ended up in the Qualifiers section of the Super 8s.

Lee wants to see the team in the top eight of Super League in 2016.

“We’ve got to be more of a team this year,” he told the Manchester Evening News.

“Obviously, we’ve brought some real quality in, but we’ve also lost a few quality players as well.

“I just think for us to be successful, we need to work really hard together and compete.

“The emphasis is to work hard for each other and get points. That’s how you win games.

“But to be honest, we want to be in the top eight.

“That’s the minimum requirement really. We don’t want to be in that bottom four and be battling for our livelihoods again.

“You’re coming up against Championship clubs in the middle eights, but they’re full of really good players.

“Those players want to come out of part-time work, and that means we’re fighting to keep our jobs, so the pressure down there was there for all to see in the quality of play.

“We don’t want to be there again.”
