Salford Red Devils 38-4 Wakefield Trinity

Wakefield Trinity failed to follow up last weekend's victory over Betfred Super League leaders St Helens after losing 38-4 to Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Jake Bibby scored twice as the Red Devils, who won at Huddersfield Giants last time out, leapfrogged their opponents into seventh spot in the table. 

Tries from Junior Sa'u, Tyrone McCarthy and Ryan Lannon gave the Red Devils a 20-0 lead after 51 minutes.

Wakefield threatened a comeback when Joe Arundel crossed, but Bibby took his try tally to four in two matches while George Griffin and Greg Johnson also scored for Salford.

Salford coach Ian Watson said: "I thought we were outstanding from the first carry. From one to 17 we were outstanding and it was one of the best performances in the last three years.

"The players all nailed their jobs tonight. We had to work hard as a group and don't have as big a squad as everyone else."

On a calf injury to Robert Lui, Watson added: "Hopefully it's not as bad as we first feared."

Wakefield coach Chris Chester said: "It was an abysmal performance. That was the worst I've seen from a Wakefield side in a long time.

"Salford taught us a lesson in how to do the little things well. They made it very hard for us. We offered nothing tonight. There were too many guys who waved the white flag."
