Team Morson’s Salford Red Devils picked up their first win of the season in their Challenge Cup opener against Widnes with a dominant 68-4 victory. Prop, Jack Ormondryod was this week’s Morson Recruit of The Round with a try and an assist, as the 29-year-old continues to make the most of his opportunities this season:

 “Yeah, it’s nice yeah, it doesn’t happen very often and it’s nice to get the recognition and a try as well which doesn’t happen very often either. The most important thing was to get the first win of the season on the board”

 He continued:

 “It’s my best moment in a Salford shirt for sure, I didn’t really play much last season but I’ve got a good few minutes under my belt in pre-season and the first couple of games this year. It’s definitely my best performance so far”

 Head coach Richard Marshall was massively impressed with Ormondroyd’s performance and hailed him as ‘A shining star for us’ and the former Featherstone Rover player is looking to continue to impress:

 "It’s nice to hear obviously positive comments like that, I think in the past I didn’t have as many chances during last season so it’s nice that Richard has put faith in me and showed trust in me. It’s good that I can repay him with a performance like that for giving me a chance”

 Jack is looking to go from strength to strength with the side and continue to build his reputation at the club in the season ahead:

 “My goal personally is to try and nail down a spot in the team every week, I had a meeting with Richard in pre-season saying that was one of my goals and I’ve put quite a lot of work in this pre-season and hopefully Richard has seen that and it’ll pay off and I can keep my spot and have a good season”

 Salford next take on Catalan Dragons who have won all three of their opening games of the season and Ormondroyd is expecting another tough test:


“It’ll be a tough game, they’ve got a big pack. We talked about restarting our season against Widnes after two disappointing opening performances and that convincing win against them will hopefully go a long way into restarting our season. It’ll be a tough test this weekend, but hopefully we can continue to build this week and put in a good performance against Catalans”

 A massive congratulations to Jack Ormondroyd from everyone at Morson for being this week’s Recruit of the Round and the best of luck against Catalans Dragons this weekend!
