In Topic: 17 Jul: Leeds Rhinos v Salford Red Devils KO 8pm

  • 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 ........

Liam Hood got injured during the warm-up, so Ran with Logan Tomkins for the full 80, and it showed..as he was dead on his feet for the last 15.
Nervous performance by Salford, unable to close out the game despite a 14 point lead mid way 2nd half. Too much easy dropped ball and stupid penalties.
