  1. Early days in his Salford tenure but alarming given the quality at his disposal, there is quality in that team, that he cannot get a tune out of them, defeat to Leigh next week and the alarm bells will be going off if not already, in hindsight, wonderful thing, maybe Salford after Watson should have gone for a coach with experience/pedigree, they look like they need a Tony Smith type coach there, not a rookie.

  2. I know its early days but Marshall looks out of his depth as a 1st team coach, seems cautious and does not want players like Escare (who cant even get in the side) and Sarginson to express themselves instead of playing them to their strengths, also the pack looks below par and injuries to Mossop and Ikahihifo would leave them quite threadbare, can see Salford and Marshall doing a "mutual consent" before the year is out and Salford going for a coach with some pedigree. 

  3. Dont quite get the doom and gloom over a club that has been one of the stand out performers over the past 2 years in Salford, current squad, at least on paper, is arguably the strongest they have had and certainly stronger than the 2019 version, if they signed half a dozen from Saints and Wigan am sure they would still get written off, they are simply not the whipping boys anymore, theyve proved that in the last 2 years.

    Yeah I think he is a good young player and a change on environment and pressure will hopefully do him well. Squad is looking stronger than last year with good balance. Top 8 should be achievable and am looking to see how Marshall grows into the role as he appears to have a strong back room staff in place now to support him.

    Top 5 tbh, best Salford squad I have seen in many years, quality and depth.

    Not an out an out hooker but can cover. 

    Showed plenty of promise at Warrington but never fulfilled his potential, hope he does well at Salford 

    Should go well if he can recapture is form from 2 years ago, on paper Salford have a very strong squad now, Taylor,Lussick, Watkins, Lolohea, Brown, Livett, Burgess, Sarginson etc, can see them definitely up there challenging again.

    Salford have a better squad now than they did when they got to the Grand Final, for me. While there were a couple of real standout players in that side that got to Old Trafford, there’s more depth to this squad. 

    Agreed, the Grand Final squad were very reliant on Hastings who pulled up trees for Salford that season, current squad looks fantastic on paper, Watkins and Sarginson international class centres, Inu a points machine, while Taylor and Lussick are definitely upgrades on Dudson and Yates, Salford look a shoe in for top 4.
