Right Said Fred: Talking Betting With Betfred Boss Fred Done

SALFORD are set to this weekend go sixth  in  Betfred Super League - pipping both Hull clubs to the vital play off spot.

It is a golden opportunity on Saturday when they play lowly Toulouse in France while Hull FC have a tricky encounter against Castleford in the next round of fixtures on the back of an absolute thumping by sixty points to nil against rampant Wigan.

While the Black and Whites were going down to a Bevan French-inspired Warriors, my home town club pulled off a morale-boosting 32-6 triumph against high-riding albeit inconsistent Catalans.

The Red Devils are now a tempting 150/1 at Betfred to win the Grand Final at Old Trafford in September but those odds will certainly be cut should Hull FC lose and Hull KR come unstuck at Warrington, also on Friday.

And if like me you think Salford could mount an 11th hour charge up the table we have Ken Sio at 8/1 to follow up his hat-trick of tries against the Dragons with the opener against Toulouse.

Talking of Warrington coach Daryl Powell must be getting increasingly frustrated at the Wolves’ stop-start season, was particularly scathing after his side’s 35-22 defeat at Castleford last weekend.

Powell, who I’m sure is finding it much more difficult than he imagined trying to revive the Wire’s fortunes, described his players as “dumb”.
