The away side took the lead after a fiercely fought opening ten minutes, as Gary Wheeler made an immediate impact with his introduction to the field by getting over. Blake Wallace missed the follow up, but Toronto led 0-4.

It wasn’t long before Salford levelled things, as Kevin Brown scored his first try for his new side and Tui Lolohea gave the Red Devils the lead from the tee heading into the break.

A pair of tries from Lolohea and Williams extended the home side’s lead at the beginning of the second half, with Williams sprinting 70 metres to score being the highlight of the afternoon.

The end to end nature of the game continued, as Gary Wheeler got his second try of the day and Brad Singleton soon followed with his first score for the Canadian outfit. Successive conversions from Blake Wallace meant that the resilient Wolfpack had levelled proceedings.

This gave Salford a wakeup call at a crucial time, as Dan Sarginson and Niall Evalds both got on the scoresheet with tries in the final ten minutes, to give the home side their first win of the Super League season.

Ian Watson gave his post-match reaction:


"I thought it was a real good win for us. I think they’re playing with confidence obviously from the back end of last year, again they’re a team that’s reasonably settled as they know their system and know how each other play. At the moment they’ve had real dry days so it suits their style of play for an offloading team like Toronto, I think they’ll cause a lot of teams problems this season"

We also caught up with cross-code mega star,  Sonny Bill Williams, who gave us his exclusive thoughts on Toronto’s first two games and how he is settling at the club:


“As a team, pretty disappointed we didn’t get the win today. We improved tremendously from the first week and for me there isn’t a mistake if there’s learning from it, and we definitely learnt from last week. For myself individually, last week I felt like I was playing league like a rugby player whereas this week I played league like a league player. I’m really happy with how I went”
