Salford Red Devils Coach Paul Rowley Addresses Leeds Rhinos Speculation Post Victory

Salford Red Devils Head Coach Paul Rowley Dismisses Leeds Rhinos Speculation After Impressive Victory Over Warrington Wolves

In the aftermath of Salford Red Devils’ dominant win over Warrington Wolves, head coach Paul Rowley has firmly shut down any speculation that he will be leaving the club to join Leeds Rhinos. This comes following the announcement that Salford’s Director of Rugby, Ian Blease, will be taking on a role at Headingley.

Rowley’s side put in a stellar performance, racing to a 19-0 lead at halftime thanks to a trio of long-range tries and a 50th Super League drop goal from talismanic half-back Marc Sneyd. Warrington, still reeling from their recent Challenge Cup final defeat, were unable to match Salford’s attacking intensity, with Sneyd in particular proving too hot to handle.

When questioned by Sky Sports’ Jenna Brooks about the possibility of him following Blease to Leeds, Rowley delivered a resounding response. “I wouldn’t get it in the time of day. It’s a hypothetical question,” he stated. “You could say that about Brisbane Broncos or anybody else couldn’t you? So yeah, I’m concentrating on giving my full attention to this group. That’s what they deserve and so that’s what I’ll do.”

Rowley’s unwavering commitment to the Salford project has been a key factor in the club’s impressive form this season, with the head coach praised for instilling an attacking identity in his side despite working within a limited budget. The performance against Warrington was a testament to the team’s cohesion and the impact of Rowley’s coaching.

Man of the Match Sneyd, who continues to lead the race for the Man of Steel award, was singled out for particular praise by his manager. Rowley highlighted the half-back’s ability to “turn it on” for the TV cameras, while also acknowledging the importance of Salford’s powerful ball carriers in laying the platform for their offensive masterclass.

As the pressure mounts on Rohan Smith at Leeds, the speculation surrounding Rowley’s potential move to Headingley is likely to continue. However, the Salford boss has made it clear that his focus remains firmly on the Red Devils, ensuring that the club’s impressive form and unity will not be disrupted by outside distractions.
