Salford Red Devils’ Victory Over Warrington Wolves: Rugby League Results

Rugby League Results: Salford Red Devils Defeat Warrington Wolves in Dramatic Fashion

Warrington Wolves suffered a disappointing 25-14 loss to the Salford Red Devils just six days after their heartbreaking Challenge Cup Final defeat. Salford’s brilliant performance on the day proved too much for the Wolves, as Sam Burgess acknowledged the “tiny hangover” from their Wembley woes as one of the contributing factors.

Salford came out firing from the first whistle, blitzing Warrington in the first half and leaving them trailing 19-0 at the break. Tries from Nene Macdonald, Marc Sneyd, and a brace from Deon Cross sealed the victory for the Red Devils, who now sit level on points with Warrington in the Super League table.

When questioned about the impact of the Challenge Cup Final defeat, Burgess was honest in his assessment, stating, “I think there’s always going to be a tiny hangover from the final last week.” He went on to explain that with only one day to prepare, compared to Salford’s two weeks, the Wolves struggled to find their rhythm early on.

Despite the loss, Burgess saw some positive aspects in his team’s performance, noting that they had controlled possession well and executed their game plan early on. However, he acknowledged that Salford’s gritty defense and ability to capitalize on their opportunities proved too much to overcome.

Looking ahead, Burgess emphasized the need for his players to “move on” from the Wembley defeat and shift their focus to their upcoming match against Hull. The Warrington boss was blunt in his assessment of his team’s performance so far this season, stating, “Well you’ve just asked me after three losses, we’ve got a bit of work to do.”

On a brighter note, it was revealed that Warrington are among the teams interested in signing Leeds Rhinos’ star player Rhyse Martin, providing a glimmer of hope for the Wolves’ fans as they aim to bounce back from this recent setback.
