Official Report / Commentary

Jackson Hastings enjoyed a debut to remember as he inspired Salford Red Devils to a 38-22 Betfred Super League victory over Leeds Rhinos at the AJ Bell Stadium.

The former Manly half-back was involved in everything during a devastating opening stint which saw the Red Devils race into a 22-6 lead before having forward Lee Mossop sent off for a headbutt in the 20th minute.

Hastings scored a try and had a hand in two others as Salford recovered from going behind in the second minute to a Brad Dwyer try.

Ryan Lannon, Niall Evalds, Ed Chamberlain and Robert Lui scored the Red Devils' other first-half tries, with Leeds only able to respond through Liam Sutcliffe as they went into the break 26-12 behind.

Tom Briscoe went over after the interval to give the Rhinos hope but Evalds crossed for his second and Josh Jones finished off Leeds, who had the last word as Matt Parcell scored late on.

Rhinos director of rugby Kevin Sinfield said: “The task in turning the team around is proving more difficult than I expected. I am disappointed with our performance. For us to dish that up hurts all of us.

“The players’ attitudes and commitment will be tested. My belief in them hasn’t changed. We will work hard which is what this club has always done in difficult circumstances.

“We are determined to fix things and hopefully the players will buy into that.”

Salford head coach Ian Watson was impressed with Hastings, saying: “It looks like we’ve got a real player there.

“His movement was smooth and he’s been dying to get out there and play. He’s been here about five or six days but the impact he had on the game was outstanding.”
