Yes, but Salford aren't worthy of Super League according to some on here.

Their acceptability has been re-assessed, due to the presence of swarthy foreigners at the gates.

Their long term sustainability has been questioned and rightly so.

They've improved by renting some good players for a maximum of 8 games.

Unless these players are kept long term, what is the point of Salford competing in Super League?

Unless they want to be the next Widnes and collect their Sky money

while virtually everything else disintegrates at their club.

Our best players will no doubt be picked off again by other teams. But this just shows that our best starting 17 is a damned good side. Our problem, for a long time has been that with a very small squad, injuries have a much bigger effect than with most other teams. And nobody else wanted Jackson Hastings!

too much too soon maybe for twp , not going in to sl would most likely be a benefit to them at this point of development 

Disagree. What this game shows is that even when you put together a decent squad, a year of playing in the Championship just doesn't prepare you for SL quality opposition. (Unless completely collapsed like Widnes) 

Wolfpack needs to go up and learn the hard way. Either they'll finally crack it and stay up, or straight back down. 

Sacking Rowley will help.

Ian Watson has developed into a great coach. He's the one you'd have to worry about losing the most.

I think Salford and all the other underperforming clubs should call it a day so the more successful clubs can have a bigger share of the pot.  Maybe one league of 8.

Toronto in again on the back of an atrocious refereeing decision,giving them an undeserved penalty when they dropped the ball. Perhaps the greatest failure in modern RL....referees giving free penalties when a ball carrier loses possession due to his own incompetence.

Second biggest failing must be the farcical play-the-ball mess.....never correctly heeled and never enforced.
