St Helens had a comfortable run out against Salford scoring 4 first half tries through Jon Wilkin (2), Leon Price and Chris Flannery to go in at half-time 20-0 up.
The second period they perhaps sat back a bit as they ran in further scores by Ade Gardner, James Graham and Keiron Cunningham. Salford did manage two scores of their own through Karl Fitzpatrick and Andrew Thornley, both converted by Stefan Ratchford to give us the final score of:
