Looking at the makeup of Cats squad I'm guessing Rouge will get a start alongside Maloney in the halves again, though they could just run a 4-forward bench (Cozza debuting) if McIlorum can go 80 with Mourgue starting at half.

Will be interesting to see what they do next season with Maloney gone, will Mourgue suffer from his utility value and end up pigeon-holed into that 14 role which has served them so well this year? Another consideration will be whether the Storm still have aspirations to get Rouge down to Aus like he was meant to this season. Whether or not McIlorum sticks around will likely have a decent bearing on those spine plans too. Either way they're in a good position with so many youngsters pushing through at the moment while the more experienced heads are all still offering quality football as well.

Both packs are depleted however Salford are missing quite a few key big bodies which should help Cats young pack. Cats by 14.

I tried to work out the winning margin on my calculator (yes, I am that old!), but it just came up with "E". Anyone know what that means?

Cats by so many, the scoreboard operator will get rsi.

A first for Cozza in the forwards. Means all 6 apprentices will have played this year. 9 French players here tonight I think (10 if you include Escare). Dragons only one success at this venue since 2016.

The club turned a corner this past year.

I have a feeling Salford will nick this one.

I also had a feeling I'd be on a promise!!!

This makes me a two time loser🤣

Salford played much better than the score suggests with 2 good tries disallowed and Inu`s kicking not up to his standard.

 

Liam Moore had a poor game as referee - he was overshadowed by Sam Tomkins plus James Maloney.

 

Surely Catalan may become the worst Super League leaders of all time.   

 

If so the standard of SL has fallen tremendously this season.

How did they manage to get a team across last night after being unable to play Warrington a few days ago due to a covid outbreak?? . Stinks of not wanting to ruin their win percentage to me or am I just being to sceptical 🤔
