Leeds Rhinos 12-20 Salford Red Devils: Play-Offs💥 Beckon for Ian Watson's Men

  |   Rugby

Salford Red Devils notched their seventh win in a row and all-but confirmed their place in Super League's semi-finals with a hard-fought 20-12 victory over Leeds Rhinos.

The Red Devils ended a decade-long losing streak at Headingley thanks to tries from Niall Evalds, Jake Bibby and Joey Lussick. Four goals kicked by Krisnan Inu were enough to hold off a fast-finishing Rhinos side and help Salford notch an important result.

The victory sees the Ian Watson's side keep hold of fourth spot, two points ahead of sixth-placed Hull FC, on the ladder with just one round of the regular Super League season left.

Rhinos' England forward Stevie Ward made his return to action after more than six months on the sidelines with a knee injury, while opposing half-backs Tui Lolohea and Robert Lui faced their former teams for the first time after swapping clubs in a loan move in June.

Salford started strongly with Logan Tomkins held up over the try-line after 11 minutes and, 10 minutes later, it was the visitors who broke the deadlock due to Evalds.

The full-back finished off a great break from the elusive Jackson Hastings to score beneath the posts. Inu converted the try to give Salford a 6-0 lead and, soon after, the Red Devils were in again.
