Whatever happens this coming weekend Salford are assured of being in the playoffs. Assuming Leeds beat Castleford (which looks a foregone conclusion) then Salford can decide by their result v Warrington, whether to go to Huddersfield or Catalan. I know which I would choose so Warrington may yet win another match.

Said in pre season I thought they had a backline as good as any and it’s now probably better then any in the league given our centre issues and Saints absences. The worry for them has always been the forwards and in the play offs I think they’ll struggle to live with the top 4 in that area.

Agreed, Salford have a game tailor made to beat us in terms of pace and expansive rugby. However come the play offs the intensity raises and its whether their forwards can do enough to contain others.

Genuinely starting to think they could win the GF now if they can keep key players fit.

Out of all the 6, they are the team I'm most worried about.

Rowley deserves a lot of credit, he has turned Salford around in short order.

I mean if you want to give us the trophy now I'd be happy not to have to sit through 3 potentially stressful play-off games? :D

It's a very strange time to be a Salford fan. In 2019 there was never any expectation from the fans even though we'd gone on a great end of season run (similar to this year) as I don't think any of us genuinely expected to make the GF. This year we were written off before a ball was kicked/thrown but I was quietly confident we could make the play-off's based on our recruitment. However, I never expected some of the rugby we've played and just how good a certain Mr Croft would be (hands off in advance! :wink: ).

The problem we now have as fans is genuine belief that we have the ability to beat any team in the top 6. Saints are a shadow of themselves without any sort of backline (interesting to see what they can cobble together for the play-off's) and we've thumped Catalans twice. Hudds backline again is devoid of pace and Leeds have improved massively but, dare I say, not a team you'd fear?(famous last words!)

For me, whilst all teams in the 6 are more than capable of beating each other I'd like to avoid Wigan. With Field & French you've got ridiculous pace in the team and the ability to cover any breaks we make, whilst also posing a massive threat at the other end.
We've also got such a loose style of play that we're susceptible to a fair few intercepts and if you do that against a team with F&F in your ranks you're taking some big risks.

I'm not worried about our pack at all. They've shown they can stand up to, and dominate, much bigger packs and with Ackers and Atkin dovetailing beautifully we've got plenty of running threat at the PTB.

Based on current form etc I'd have Wigan as favourites to win the GF and probably Salford 2nd favourites. Seems crazy to even see myself write that tbh and I still think Saints will somehow manage to get 3/4 bodies back and have a massive say in things.

One thing is for sure though, whoever beats us will have to earn it as this Salford team won't roll over and have it's tummy tickled! :D
