I would love Salford to win this but their defence is so bad that they don't have a hope.  Alas.

Wires have turned a corner, I expect a close game early doors, then wires to turn on the style

Wires 80

Salford 6

 

I've told you a million times not to exaggerate! You really think we'll get 6?  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

This will be a good a useful barometer of Wire's state of play. As bigger battles get closer, are they locked and loaded or a season past their peak?

While I am not too sure who will line up on the right wing for Salford,with the absence of Danny Williams,the prospect of the has he/hasn't he signed for SCR

Jodie Broughton,possibly up against former SCR loanee Rhys Williams is certainly intriguing.

With Lee Briers in the line-up the half back performance,where I hope Theo continues to showcase his talent,may be another area where a team is only as strong as its weakest link.

Salford victory - without requiring the golden point. :wacko:

It was respectful of Tony Smith to put out a strong line-up for Warrington.

The intense preparation by Salford,for such an important game,of having the head coach and players at Chester Races during the week,obviously paid dividends. :rolleyes:

With 98 points conceded in the last 2 away games,Wigan and Warrington,it demonstrates the great strides the club has made since the sacking of Phil Veivers. :wacko:

The failure to put points on the board despite repeat sets in the first half shows we ain't missing Sean Long. :(

A poor turn out by Warrington followers,with an attendance of 5k when they can usually find another 25k to go to Wembley.

A big well done to the Salford supporters for their vocal support in the second half.

May I request all masochists out there to congregate at the SCS next Friday evening.Be in the stadium for an 8pm start.

Whilst the attendance is significantly down on a corresponding SL fixture, I would look a little closer to home before throwing stones.

Yes the 150 Salford fans made themselves heard for the last 20 mins.

Fair play to Wire - they put a strong side out and the result was probably never in doubt.

CC attendances are lower than ever and the crowd for this match crowd was better than Hull KR v Wigan - so no point in dwelling on that and yes, our crowds are so poor we can't speak on the matter anyway!

I think Wire look good right now and should win some silverware again. At Salford it is just one game at a time and enjoy any wins that come our way - ala Widnes last year. I don't expect anything else, but hope next season will be better ...

I think it's too close to call....who knows who will play better!!

 

Just to put a positive slant on things.

 

Bradford are probably the "safer bet", but Salford are quite capable of springing a surprise, and if we can sneak an extra player onto the pitch, well ...   :lol:

A must-win game for us I feel. And I mean this as no disrespect to Salford - if we lose to on Friday I think it's season over for us.
