Smith and Fages out for Salford

Salford half-backs Theo Fages and Tim Smith will miss the Magic Weekend through injury.

Fages, 19, could be out for up to five weeks with a shoulder injury, suffered in the 16-16 draw with Hull KR last weekend.

Australian Smith has been out of favour in recent weeks, playing in two of the last four games having previously started the first 10 games of the season.

He joined from Wakefield in the close season, and no explanation is being given for his expected stint on the sidelines.

Tommy Lee is expected to deputise in the halves alongside Rangi Chase.

Salford take on Widnes at the Magic Weekend on Saturday, a team they have already lost to twice this season.
