Super League

Hull eased to victory over struggling Salford in their re-arranged Super League match at the KC Stadium.

The game was effectively over after 25 minutes, by which time the home side were 26-0 up with tries from Willie Manu, Richard Horne (2) and Craig Hall.

The Reds then mounted a mini-revival with three tries in a 10-minute period either side of the interval.

But Hull stifled any hope of a comeback by taking their try tally to eight as they made it four wins in a row.

  • Hull coach Peter Sharp:
  • "Considering the number of players we have out and the number of players who took the field injured I thought we were solid.

    "I thought we were a bit soft around the edges in patches. The kids are doing well and it's hard on them, especially the week-in, week-out stuff, preparing mentally and physically but they are doing a great job for us.

  • Salford coach Shaun McRae:
  • "We're very much a Jekyll and Hyde side at the moment. I'm still making decisions on players. Today I have a different opinion to what I had last week. It's very confusing for me and I'm at a loss to explain it.

    "A couple of weeks ago we were beaten soundly by Wakefield and Warrington and then last week we beat Bradford so I thought we could build on that.

    "Defensively we were very poor, Willie Manu not only didn't get tackled I don't think he got touched. You can't build a game plan around that. After 20 minutes the game was probably over."

    Hull: Tony, Sing, Whiting, G. Horne, Hall, R. Horne, Head, Dowes, Lee, King, Radford, Manu, Tickle.
    Replacements: Wheeldon, Washbrook, Maiava, Houghton.

    Salford: Saxton, Barnett, McGuinness, Moule, Viane, Wilshere, Robinson, Coley, Alker, Korkidas, Wainwright, Brocklehurst, Finnigan.
    Replacements: Dorn, Haggerty, Littler, Nash.

    Referee: Phil Bentham (Castleford).
