Jake Connor has promised to learn from his mistakes, after being caught on camera rowing with a Hull team-mate during the latter stages of the season. Connor was shown arguing with Mark Minichiello during the closing stages of the defeat to Castleford last month. He told the Yorkshire Post’s Dave Craven: “Obviously, the bad thing is the camera was on me. But it happens when the camera’s not there so it’s not just me that it happens to. I’ll live and I’ll learn from it. Hopefully it doesn’t happen again.”

Two Salford supporters are in dispute with William Hill over a pay-out, says the Manchester Evening News’s Neal Keeling. The pair put money on Jackson Hastings to win Man of Steel and the Red Devils to finish in the top five. But despite seeing both outcomes come to fruition, Gary Smeaton and Kris Shenton have been told their bet isn’t valid by the bookies.


Wigan head coach Adrian Lam believes Salford have picked up one of the best Super League signings ahead of the 2020 season in Dan Sarginson. The former London centre will leave the DW Stadium for the Red Devils next year and Lam backed him to be a success in Salford. He told Wigan Today’s Phil Wilkinson: “Sarge has been great for us, and he’s going to be sorely missed. I think Salford have got one of the best pick-up buys in the competition in my opinion.”


The Hull Daily Mail’s William Jackson reports that despite competition from other parties, Hull FC remain confident in signing Leigh utility Joe Cator. Rumours have circulated recently suggesting the former Robin was about to sign with their cross-city rivals, while the Centurions also offered Cator a new deal. However FC are still confident in bringing Cator to the KCOM Stadium for 2020.
