PremierLeague-News.Com - Wilkin said he felt Salford 'didn't have the minerals' to make the top six
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Jon Wilkin has admitted he was wrong to suggest Salford Red Devils didn't 'have the minerals' to make the Super League play-offs after a brilliant exchange with head coach Paul Rowley. The Red Devils are firmly in the mix for the top six, and can enhance their case further on Sunday with victory at eighth-placed Leeds Rhinos. Wilkin said as recently as several weeks ago of the Red Devils: "They're flimsy. You can attack your way out of trouble to a certain extent but there's . I just don't see Salford with any backbone. If you look at the fixtures they've got, there's Warrington, Hull and Castleford - how big are they? And they're all teams in the mix. I just don't think they've got the minerals to get it done." When that was put to Wilkin and Rowley on Sky Sports on Wednesday, the Salford head coach laughed: "We're pretty chilled to be fair, we don't sweat the small stuff.

." Wilkin then conceded he had perhaps been hasty in writing off the Red Devils. "When I said that, at that point in the year it looked completely different," he said. "Paul knows things change and at that point in the year I wondered if they could defensively get it together. But wow, they have got it together. You only know what's going on in the dressing room as a player and you take confidence from that. As a pundit, my job is to create some healthy debate and have an opinion otherwise what I'll do is sit there and say nothing on TV. And it's very awkward when you sit there and say nothing!"
