THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

SALFORD RED DEVILS

Head Coach: Ian Watson

Squad: Bibby, Burgess, Flanagan, Hauraki, Johnson, Jones, Kopczak, Lannon, Littlejohn, Lui, Mossop, Olpherts, Nakubuwai, Sa’u, Shorrocks, Tasi, Tomkins, Welham, Wood

Unavailable: Manu Vatuvei, Tyrone McCarthy, Niall Evalds, George Griffin

  • Salford failed to back up their Good Friday win over Catalans as they were nilled by Leeds on Easter Monday. The Red Devils’ search for consistency seems no closer as Leeds controlled the game and scored 20 unanswered points.
  • Jake Shorrocks could make his first appearance for Salford after he arrived on a one-month loan deal from Wigan.
  • Salford have followed their previous two losses with a win and will hope that sequence will continue in this one but they face a Warrington side who are in good form.

WARRINGTON WOLVES

Head Coach: Steve Price

Squad: Akauola, Atkins, K. Brown, Charnley, Clark, Cooper, Crosby, Currie, Goodwin, Hill, Hughes, G. King, T. King, Lineham, Philbin, Ratchford, Roberts, Smith, Westwood

Unavailable: Matty Russell, Declan Patton, Mitch Brown, Harvey Livett, Ben Murdoch-Masila

  • Warrington made it four wins from four as they backed up their win over Widnes on Good Friday with a solid win away at Castleford on Easter Monday. The Wolves came out on top in monsoon conditions with a fully deserved 6-18 win.
  • Ben Murdoch-Masila picked up a knee injury over Castleford so sits out this one. He is replaced in the 19-man squad by Morgan Smith.
  • Warrington have won their last four games as they appear to have turned the corner from their slow start to the season. In those four wins, they have conceded an average of just 15 points per game.

THE PREDICTION

Salford host Warrington with the Red Devils needing to bounce back from their nilling against Leeds on Monday. They face a Warrington side in great form having put four wins together on the bounce. Salford have failed to register a try in two of their nine games so far this season and will come up against an improving defence. Warrington’s attack has also been much improved recently and they will see this as a great opportunity to make it five wins on the spin with the Wolves capable of racking up a big score if the Red Devils aren’t careful.
