    Love it. Brilliant stuff, gutted we aren't there but Max and Grant are about to lift Silverware at Wembley. Get in there! Lift off for the new era. Don't look back, onwards and upwards we go.

    Well done lads. Great to get the Wembley hoodoo gone ahead of potentially bigger games there over the next few years. And first trophy in my life.

    Thought O’Nien was immense again. Burge very good as well.

    Couldn’t care less Donald was there. Whether he had bad intentions for us or not he’s clearly grown a soft spot for us. And he’s a total irrelevance.

    Delighted for Leadbitter and Gooch as long serving players, even if both were poor today (not that that matters)

    Totally agree, my hearts in my mouth when Burge goes near the ball, but credit where it’s due, the last 2 games he’s been excellent.

    To win with a massively weakened team was a bonus. No excuses for any drops in league performance! Let's finish the job and our stay in this slum league

    Luke all the way for me he was again superb, and had to be. They were our equals if not the better team for large parts of the game but we have one or two exceptional players , we need to keep them at all costs.

    Worst trophy defence ever by Salford, it’s almost as if they lost it before they won it.
