Salford response pleases Watson
Salford Red Devils coach Ian Watson was pleased to see his side return to winning ways by beating Wakefield Trinity on Sunday.
The Red Devils ended their four-match losing streak across all competitions in emphatic fashion at the AJ Bell Stadium as they ran in eight tries on their way to a 44-20 victory over Trinity.
Fullback Niall Evalds ran in two late tries to complete a hat-trick, while there was also a brace from wing Jake Bibby, with Watson keen to praise the entire team's performance.
"The players responded the right way after a tough month," Watson said. "We started the game really well and that set us up for the game."
The result saw Salford move above Wakefield and up to sixth in the Super League standings but only eight points separate Catalans Dragons in fourth and bottom club London Broncos.
Watson is certainly aware just how competitive Super League is this season and has urged his side to remain focused over the coming weeks.
"It's really interesting at the moment. The season is livening up but this was a massive game for us. The boys have refocused as a group," Watson added.
Salford are back in action when they welcome Castleford Tigers to the AJ Bell Stadium on Friday.
