Salford keep rolling with Hull rout

Salford boss Ian Watson hailed his team’s attacking capabilities after they roared to a 54-18 victory at Hull FC on Friday.

Greg Johnson and Craig Kopczak both scored twice in the first-half, while Robert Lui, Junior Sa’u and Justin Carney also crossed as the Red Devils ran riot against the hosts.

Michael Dobson, George Griffin and Ben Murdoch-Masila added further scores after the break to move Salford up to second in the table.

“It’s where we want to be, challenging up there – what has got us there is our team ethic, our hard work and our togetherness and we’ve got to keep that as our core feature,” said Watson.

“We weren’t too happy with our defence at certain points. We weren’t as good as we had been defensively and it’s something we need to look at because we pride on ourselves on our defence to make sure we are a top team.

“Our attack was great, once we got into a groove, we didn’t feel there was any problems. We got our continuity back and we played really well, which was great to see.”
