Comfortable win for Robins.
Salford will be blooding 4-5 academy players and the pressure is off re play off game .

  • A couple of things - 1. I was at the game and I saw a top of the table side fully refreshed after playing 8 days previously , and looking to respond to a loss ,  overwhelm a 11th placed  team that only had a four day turnaround .
  • Leeds are a team on it's day who can put high scores on most opponents including 46 against St Helens 2 weeks previously .
  • I rate McDermott highly, but was surprised he levelled the blame to the owners antics rather than the more obvious fitness issue , Leeds were pumped , Salford were drained.    

Salford & its outspoken owner are somewhat an easy target for criticism , however what I find odd is the it's predominantly Yorkshire based chairman,coaches & ex Players that seem to be forming a queue to have their say over the past season  - Paul Anderson - Kath Hetherington - Richard Agar - now the Leeds Coach . swiftly followed by that bastion of unprejudiced journalism :- Garry Schofield


I'm not daft enough to come on here to defend Marwan , but I'm undecided whether McDermott's comment were aimed at the welfare of Salford's players or just plain ol' sticking the boot in ... 

I bet his comments really gave them a lift ........
