Watson pleased with Caton-Brown’s response

Ian Watson believes Mason Caton-Brown repaid the faith shown in him after scoring a hat-trick of tries in Salford’s 34-12 victory over Huddersfield.

The winger was selected ahead of Niall Evalds for the Qualifiers opener, and he vindicated his selection with a hat-trick of tries for the Red Devils.

And Watson was thrilled with his performance.

“Mason didn’t have the greatest game the last time out against Hull and it was a tough call between him and Niall. But he repaid the faith we have in him and his finishing is unreal.”

Watson also saved praise for debutants Luke Burgess and Feleti Mateo, who impressed in their first appearances.

“Luke could have done more minutes to be fair and Feleti was blowing a bit but both will be better for the run-outs.”
