FINAL SCORE: Saints 34 Salford Red Devils 2

Last updated:

    SAIINTS maintained their winning start to the Super League campaign, with flashes of real Ben Barba brilliance lifting an often scrappy, stop-start game from the gloom.
  • In the end it turned into a pretty convincing display – and they will be especially pleased at keeping their line intact.
  • Barba set up the first try for Tommy Makinson and then dashed in for a brace to give Saints a 14-2 lead just after the break.
  • In a game littered with penalties and riddled with errors, Saints always seemed to have enough against a spirited Red Devils outfit.
  • But the floodgates opened in the last 10 minutes, with tries from Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Jonny Lomax and Luke Thompson wrapping up a comprehensive win.
