  • Salford Red Devils comfortably beat Leigh Centurions in preseason at the AJ Bell Stadium

  • Morson's man of the match Rhys Williams speaks to us about the match and the coming season

This past Saturday saw Salford Red Devils storm past a game and valiant Leigh side, as their attack proved to be too much for the away team, with seven tries on the day.

Joey Lussick’s early try was cancelled out minutes later by Leigh’s Liam Hood. However, the home side quickly established their dominance with tries from Williams, Sio and Greenwood setting them apart at half time.

The Centurions began the second half the livelier side and looked to get back into the game, with Sa’u marking his return to the AJ Bell with a try against his former club. Despite Leigh’s attempted resurgence, Salford further extended their lead with Williams getting his second of the day. Johnson and Chamberlain added another two tries to seal an impressive 40-14 win for the Red Devils.

Morson's Man of the Match, Rhys Williams, commented on his try scoring efforts and gave his reaction to the victory:

“It’s obviously pleasing to get the win and get a few tries. There were a few aspects where we let ourselves down and didn’t control the ball as well as we’d like, so there’s a few building blocks but overall we’re fairly buzzing”

He continued:

“I think Leigh had a lot of momentum in that second half, through our own fault I think… They’re a good side, they’re tough to beat and it’s a great test for us in pre-season"

The Welsh international looks like he is more than finding his feet at his new club, with three tries in his first two matches. The winger gave an insight into life at Salford:

“Obviously we got to the Grand Final last year but we want to go one further and win it this year. The standard of training is really high, everyone is a good bloke so when you’ve got that in place, it’s easy to slot in as long as you work hard”

Next up is a step-up in competition against fellow Super League side, Warrington Wolves and the 30-year-old thinks it’ll be a more than fitting test ahead of the new season:

“They won the Challenge Cup last year which shows how much pedigree they’ve got. You’ve only got to look at their squad to see the calibre of players they have so it’s great to have that next step in pre-season training and see where we’re at”

Morson became headline sponsors of Salford Red Devils shortly before their Super League Grand Final appearance at Old Trafford.

We will next be covering Salford at the AJ Bell when they take on Toronto Wolfpack in a few weeks, keep an eye out for content before that!
