Last season’s Grand Final runners-up Salford take on newly-promoted Toronto on Saturday afternoon, hoping to make up for their 48-8 drubbing at the hands of St Helens last weekend. The Wolfpack, meanwhile, will be hoping to avenge their opening day defeat to Castleford in the first Super League double-header.
These two sides have met just twice in their history, with Salford winning both – a Challenge Cup game in 2017 and a Middle 8s Qualifier in 2018 by a combined margin of just 19. The Red Devils won their last five home games of the season in their record-breaking season in 2019 so Toronto certainly have their work cut out.
Ryan Lannon and Connor Jones have been called up to Salford’s 21-man squad by head coach Ian Watson as Adam Walker and Mark Flanagan drop out.
Toronto to fall even further down to earth as Salford make home advantage count.
