Well Salford took the lead via try by Hurst and goal by
Southward, but after that it quickly unravelled for Salford. Enoch went off
injured, Burgess was Sent Off and Boyd got injured as well. So this ended up
a 13 v 10 man contest and........well the final score tells its own story.
The game became farcical second half and it was a "relief when time put an
end to the monotony of try scoring" according to newspaper reports.
