Watson: We didn’t take our opportunities

Salford boss Ian Watson admitted his team hadn’t reached the standards they’d set in recent weeks during Sunday’s 34-24 defeat at home to Wakefield.

The result ended the Red Devils’ seven-match winning run and left them four points behind leaders Castleford, who beat St Helens 16-12 at The Jungle.

“In the first half we dominated field position which seems a strange thing to say when you go in 16-6 down,” said Watson.

“We didn’t give Wakefield a sniff of our goal line apart from our errors and invited them to score.

“Little bits of our attack were probably off in certain areas – whether that’s a build-up of fatigue I don’t know.

“Wakefield took their opportunities and we didn’t. We haven’t defended as we should have. It’s up to us now to recover.”
