Watson wants more

Salford coach Ian Watson was pleased with his side’s Magic Weekend performance but wants more victories as the Red Devils try to reclimb the table.

The Red Devils edged past Widnes 16-12 in Newcastle.

“It’s a good win, every win is massive for us,” Watson said.

“We have to make sure we come out as winners, whatever it takes. We made ourselves do a lot of defence first half. Our halves managed the second half well.

“Widnes were at almost full strength and managed the first half well. It should’ve been a bit more of a comfortable win for us.”

Daniel Vidot scored two tries and Watson believes the winger will improve.

“He’s working hard, he’s still short of match fitness,” he said.

“To be fair he’s not fully there with his shoulder yet. He’ll only get better. His first two games weren’t sparkling, he knows that.”

Watson said the playing group has ignored the salary cap drama and is focused on winning games.

“We ignore that,” he said.

“We deal with what we can deal with on the pitch. We need to keep reclaiming those points back.”
