Salford making sure team are fully prepared and safe for Wembley showdown

Salford chief executive Ian Blease says they are sparing no expense to ensure the team are fully prepared and safe for the Challenge Cup final.

Because the game is being played behind closed doors at Wembley due to Covid-enforced restrictions, Blease admits it will be no money-spinner, but he says the club are sparing no expense to ensure the team will be fully prepared – and safe – for the clash with Leeds on Saturday.

“We’ve had to book two floors at the hotel, all single rooms, and we’ve booked first-class carriages on the train,” Blease said.

“We’re not trying to be big time because that’s we’re not we’re like at Salford, it’s down to risk assessments.

“We’ve had to go that extra bit for the Covid. From stepping on to the coach out here on Thursday, there will be total isolation, even the training run at London Broncos has had to be risk-assessed.

“It’s a mini lockdown but it’s been like this for weeks. I think everybody is living on their nerves.

“We were tested last week and we’re all clear, we were tested again this morning and we get the results tomorrow. I’m sat here fingers crossed.”
