Official Match Report

A stunning first-half performance from Salford Red Devils saw them claim a remarkable 44-10 victory over St Helens at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Greg Johnson, Craig Kopczak and Niall Evalds crossed, while Robert Lui marked his home debut with two tries as the Reds racked up a 32-6 lead at the break.

Alex Walmsley had scored the solitary try for the Saints in the first-half, but they were unable to build on that as Adam Walne touched down soon after half-time to extend the hosts' lead.

Phil Joseph was then held up over the line, but Salford were back on the board when a smart Michael Dobson dummy saw him cross just before the hour.

St Helens finally enjoyed some pressure and Adam Swift touched down in the corner after repeat sets on the line for a consolation, but a fine grubber from Lui left Evalds to wrap up a fine win and claim revenge for a 52-6 reverse exactly a year ago.

St Helens coach Keiron Cunningham questioned his players after the loss. He said: "It was a horrible start to the game, completely and utterly a mentality thing.

"We just didn't approach the game with the right mindset.

"You can smell an air of complacency about the place just before the game. I spoke to my staff about it, I was a little bit worried about it but, once they're ready to cross the line, it's a little late.”

Salford's Ian Watson added: "We spoke about getting off to a good start this week because we didn't start well at Hull at all.

"The size of the win probably surprised me but we're a real confident group and it was about putting something right that we did wrong last week. We know if we do those things consistently, we'll be a good team. Time will tell."

On man-of-the-match Lui, he said: "He's a good player but our middles stood up which allowed Robbie and Michael Dobson to play off the back of that.”
