Monday 26th October, 16:30, Super League Round 18, Emerald Headingley Stadium, Leeds, Salford Red Devils versus St Helens Match Preview

The form of these two sides could not be starker going into this one. Whilst Salford was on the receiving end of a 50-12 thrashing by Wigan, St Helens themselves were doing the thrashing, 40-8 against Leeds. Those results left the Red Devils languishing in ninth as Saints consolidated their position at the top of the table.
