Andre Savelio opened the scoring for Hull in the 18th minute. Salford forward Ryan Lannon was sin-binned in the 25th minute for a late hit on Marc Sneyd. As a result, Sneyd added a penalty goal.

Josh Reynolds has made a fine start to life at Hull after he finished off a lovely move from Jake Connor. Sneyd’s conversion put Hull in a 14-0 lead at the break.

Cameron Scott capped off a fine Hull display five minutes from time with a try to secure a comfortable 35-4 win for Hull.
