Now another of Super League’s surprise packages of 2017 in the Salford Red Devils.
Marwan Koukash’s Red Devils were the dark horses of the top flight for large periods this season and looked good money for some silverware.
Though they ultimately fell short, they provided plenty of entertainment, especially for their contingent of home supporters.
Just check out how they got in last season and where perhaps, they could have gone better!
Best Performance: Hull FC 18-54 Salford Red Devils
What a way to bag a first ever Super League win at the KCOM stadium as Salford Red Devils took apart Hull FC back in April in their best 80 minutes of the season.
Salford recently bagged three consecutive wins but Hull too were on an unbeaten run so such a heavy result stunned all.
Both Greg Johnson and Craig Kopczak secured two tries apiece, with Robert Lui, Junior Sa’u, Justin Carney, Michael Dobson, George Griffin and Ben Murdoch-Masila completing the rout.
The Airlie Birds were left perplexed by such a ruthless display as Salford were just unstoppable, especially in attack.
Here they demonstrated how quickly they moved on from their close shave with relegation and just how competitive a club they really are.
It’s not often you travel to the home of the Challenge Cup winners and beat them so comfortably, hence the selection.
