Is Tui going to lead Salford to premiership glory?
Ian Watson has done a brilliant job as coach, Jackson Hastings as a player

I know the bloke who led the club takeover from Koukash, Andrew Rosler, and I remember thinking at the time he must be mad, they’ve stuck by Watson though and got steadily better. Big game for them against Wigan tomorrow

See SKD is heading to Hull KR.

He was with the Ngaruawahia Panthers when I first laid eyes on him.
Had a good tall frame and was talk about his talent.
No one thought he would of made a great career of it though.
If you work hard and fight for it,it can pay off.
Be a great story for rising players on how he got there after being told he wasn't good enough.

Had a good long NRL career, did the Kiwi jersey proud more than not.

Good Luck bro.

Yeah done well for himself, got a premiership ring n'all. A bit rocks n diamonds lately so good to go end it in the ESL, should do OK. He was lucky the Warriors never kept him and he go to go to better teams as a junior.

Watched the Wolves v Tigers game.

Got a good prop in Liam Watts?
See him at the clap.

Took up the challenge of the evergreen Hill.

Ben Murdoch-Masila has gone big,a bit lazy these days.
Still a handful but.

Salford really is a success story!

Little support, small crowds, many reject players, based in a non RL town, were supported and held together by a billionaire who has recently departed.

Look at them in comparison to St Helens, Wigan, Leeds & Cas’.
They’ve done well

There are good players in the ESL that we need to sign. Some of these are Aussies, Kiwis looking to get back into the NRL. In the past we’ve signed Henderson, Swann and Campion from the ESL ... who is next?

Luke Thompson. Tremendous player. Watch out for a lad called Morgan Smithies, big future ahead of him

When it comes to Salford the potential for big crowds must be there, it’s a city of 250,000 joined onto Manchester. The problem is they’ve been poor for 45 years.

I agree. We need a Manchester or Liverpool team to succeed. However, see below ...

London, potential
Sheffield, potential
Bradford, potential

Wales, potential
Newcastle,potential

I know, I know

Bradford has foundered on Odsal, a huge monkey on their back. London is improving. Newcastle are improving

The amateur game is strong in all these places.

You can tell I’m one of life’s optimists:cool:

If Salford can win something, or at least get to the final the media exposure they will get (Salford is the home of BBC sport nowadays - Media City) will be fantastic

We still have an ex Warrior playing as Bodene and his Wolf pack take on Featherstone for the right to play in the Super League.

Featherstone smoked our braveheart James Bell to face Toronto.

Good Luck Bodene.

ESL has some good players. It's hard to think as a junior Josh Hodgson couldn't get a run at Hull FC, playing only a couple of games. Joins Hull KR and from memory played second division for a season.

Now he is one of the best in the NRL.

It demonstrates there is talent in ESL but sometimes you need to go looking for it.

PS : For romance would love Featherstone to gain ESL status. However, the game needs Toronto.

agree about Thompson - standout for St Helens this season. Only trouble is, I'm sure he's on every NRL club's radar.

well who'd 'a' thought it? 12 nil to Salford at 1/2 time. Salford have a young player in the 1/2s who could do really well in the NLR. Effective everywhere on the pitch, skills at a different level, impeccable off-field behaviour. English heritage as far back as 1066.
