Brian Noble hailed the impact of Theo Fages after the stand-off guided Salford to a 44-18 win in London.

French teenager Fages replaced the injured Rangi Chase and showcased his skills with two tries and an excellent all-round display as the Red Devils made it two wins from two in Super League.

Head coach Noble said: "It is a tough ask for any player to step in for Rangi Chase and Theo did really well.

"He showed the value that he has to us. He has not had much game time and I was really pleased with what he did for us today.

"Overall I thought it was a pretty good day. We were a bit scrappy in the first half and we had to defend well as London were very enthusiastic.

"But we showed our attacking prowess and I'm satisfied where we are at, at this stage of the season."

Progress

Despite the defeat, London coach Tony Rea insisted his side showed signs of improvement after last Sunday's opening 64-10 drubbing by Widnes.

Rea said: "I thought there was a big reaction from last week. We are a very young, inexperienced team and we really took it to a very experienced side.

"We were really committed to being a team and I thought there were some wonderful signs. There were definite signs of progression and I expect us to progress further again.

"We always knew that this was going to be a tough period for us and we have to work through it."
