There were long periods of Salford not doing anything. The score is close because of a last minute Broughton try, think the 12 points difference was a fair reflection but didn't show the hard work.

Arrudel injury looked nasty as did Williams stitches to the face.

Evalds was outstanding and showed some great play. Salford are still playing with a number of under 21s which illustrates the hard work done by Hunte.

Foran & Magoldrick have both been dropped by Hunte.

No idea what Noble will make of it all.

I noticed Hunte trying to rotate the squad a little and create competition for places. Not a bad idea - makes no one feel in a comfort zone and makes people try harder

Based purely on the final score, which was close, Salford must have put some good effort in though, much better than last week? Hopefully Salford will pull off another win soon.

One of the Hull tries was a bit of a freak from charging down a kick. A couple of others were purely down to shoddy defence.

I actually thought Hull looked very poor, given their personnel.

Sign of a champion side, looking poor and winning.

Damn, I was rather hoping for a serious bite or two, tbh.

Scrappy game that Hull never looked like losing tbh.
The Horne / Heremaia partnership seems to be working and Horne dusted off the cobwebs and showed some class.

For Salford the arrival of Noble is one thing and I expect them to improve - but it's going to take more than Bri, to get them up into the 8.

More injuries for Hull. Arundel expected to be out for two months. Luckily Yeaman is expected to be fit again in two weeks to face Wigan (as well as Ellis) so we should be covered.

But it seems the injury curse has struck again! Currently both our centres, both our half backs and both our second rowers are injured (and our top two goal kickers and two star signings are in that list).

How come Leeds never get injuries?! It's a bloody RFL conspiracy!

Maybe Hull really need to look at their conditioning staff?

A makeshift half back combination and a team full of youngsters. Got to be pleased with the two points. Gentle is doing a very good job with the players he has available. 

 

What bearing did the conditions have on the game? I understand the weather wasn't as nice as it was over here on the sunny side of the country.

Neither side looked great, but you couldn't fault the commitment from both sets of players. I am not despondent about Salford on that showing. We are getting better. Slowly, admittedly, but the improvement is there. We defended better than we have done and Hull had to work for their scores. What I think we do lack is some variety in our attack. We seem to have one play and other teams have sussed it now. Broughton's try came from trying something different. I wish we had the guts to try stuff like that earlier in the game. Of course, it might not work earlier, but I'd still like to see us try something like that.

 

Anyway, well done to Hull. Hope to see you guys for a drink before the games on 7th July.

And perfectly timed, I had just turned to my husband and said we need Jodie to go the length of the field and over the Sneyd kick comes . Shame we left it so late to try these things.

That try by Broughton was spectacular.

Can't help thinking Danny Williams,had he been fully fit,but had returned for the 3rd time this season after a hamstring/quad injury,would have scored a similar effort earlier in the 2nd half.He had also suffered a facial injury earlier in the game.

Ben Crooks' effort was better. Now that was a length of the field effort.  :P

Saw a picture of Danny's cut, rather deep cut. Think he ended up with 7 stitches.
