Salford stay positive in hunt for home advantage

Salford forward Harrison Hansen insists that spirit is staying strong in the Red Devils’ camp, desite the controversies of recent weeks.

The Red Devils have seemingly been in a state of flux for the last few weeks, with Iestyn Harris set to leave the club, and Tim Sheens coming in as director of rugby.

The team were also hammered 70-6 by Leeds last week, and it looks like they will have to improve if they want to ensure their Super League status next season, as they head into the Super 8s Qualifiers.

“It’s been a positive mood in the camp,” Hansen told the Manchester Evening News.

“The day after the game and a few days after, we came in and watched the video with Tim Sheens and the coaches.

“We just sat down, went through the game and said what we needed to work on. It was a massive disappointment that loss but we’ve got to move on.”

Teams who finish in ninth and tenth in Super League are guaranteed four out of the seven Super 8s games at home.

Hansen is keen for his team to claim what could be a key advantage.

“We play Widnes this week and we have a good chance of finishing in the top 10 and getting that home advantage,” he added.

“It’d be good to have some more players coming back but at the end of the day it’s all about our attitude and how we turn up.

“Everyone’s stayed positive, we’ve had a good week and we’ve worked hard so hopefully we can get that win against Widnes.”
