Jones ‘sulking’ following Salford’s poor run of form

Salford star Josh Jones admits that their recent run of defeats has left him in a bad mood.

The Red Devils have narrowly lost their last three matches to Wigan, Leeds and Huddersfield, which has left them joint bottom of Super League, although they would be in the top eight had they not been deducted six points for salary cap breaches.

An appeal into that penalty is set to take place next month, however, Jones is more focused on ensuring results improve on the field.

“I don’t take losing very well,” he told TotalRL. “I like a sulk when we’re not winning so I’m not in the best of moods at the minute.

“We need to manage the game better and we need to do it pretty quick. But we’re a team and we will stand by each other no matter what. We’ll come through it on the other side and in the next two weeks we will be training hard to sort that out.”

Jones has impressed for the Red Devils in recent weeks, however he insists that it means nothing to him while the team is losing.

“At the end of the day I’m all for the team rather than my own performances. If I’m playing well then so be it.

“We have to be smart. We have four games left, so we need to be smart with our recovery, but also we need to ensure we aren’t slacking in training and doing our extras in the gym.”
