A new dawn in Manchester for Rugby League? For Swinton & Salford?

Listening to BBC GMR it doesn't sound like Salford had a chance, I doubt it given BBCGMR's usual Pro-Wigan/ Anti Reds commentary, but I think the Pinks may need to improve before May to have a chance of a play-off place

Reds have a lot of players to come in. They were always on a hiding to nothing. Their new management will turn them round big style.

Salford were never going to get near in this game. They have a team of under 20s and fringe players. Once their staff start to get on board things will change. Hopefully Salford fans will see that and stick with the club until things get on to an even keel.

Yes I agree, unfortunatly I think it may take 3 or 4 years

Not necessarily. It'll depend on how astute the recruitment is and how good or otherwise a coach Viviers actually is.

If Wigan are weaker this year then you certainly wouldn't know it from that scoreline! A great start to the season for them and one which suggests that once again they're a force to be reckoned with.

why?


From what I can gather there was a bit of mucking round at the ruck (also by flower) in the first half and wigan got put on a team warning towards the end. An incident happens early in the second and you reap what you sow.
