Watson praises Salford’s quick start

Salford boss Ian Watson hailed his team’s fast start as they secured a comphensive 46-10 success at Widnes Vikings on Friday.

The Red Devils led 30-0 at the break and after introducing Australian half-back Todd Carney during the second half they comfortable eased to their fourth win of the season.

“It was a great start, something we spoke about,” Watson told BBC Radio Manchester.

“We felt we let ourselves down a bit with LWLW record and we wanted to change the mindset of that about backing games up. To get a 30-0 lead at half-time was tremendous.

“People talk about us saying we can’t back up, so it’s important for us to show them we can back up.

“Todd’s got class, we see it in training, it’s all about getting him in at the right time. When he first came on he chased the ball about. Later on his dropped into our shapes. He has some nice little touches to him.”
