Shane Wright’s second-half try helped secure victory for Salford over Castleford

Shane Wright got the crucial second-half try which helped Salford Red Devils cement their place in the Betfred Super League’s play-off places with a 14-6 win over Castleford Tigers.

There was nothing to separate the teams in Thursday’s clash at the AJ Bell Stadium at half-time, with Greg Eden giving the Tigers the lead inside the first three minutes and Brodie Croft finishing for last year’s play-off semi-finalists to bring them level as the interval approached.

Both teams were denied tries by a combination of errors and strong defence, but forward Wright powered over midway through the second half for a try which broke the deadlock and made it advantage Salford.

Marc Sneyd, who converted both of his side’s tries, followed that up by giving the Red Devils even more breathing room with a goal from a penalty, and Paul Rowley’s side were able to see out the game to boost their top-six hopes and inflict more misery on struggling Cas.
