Derrell Olpherts scored a hat-trick as Salford Red Devils claimed their third straight win in the Super 8s Qualifiers to condemn Championship side Halifax to a third successive loss.
The Red Devils beat Hull KR and Widnes Vikings in their opening two fixtures and this latest success saw them take a significant step towards Super League survival.
Ian Watson’s side had too much quality for their hosts and tries from Jackson Hastings, Ed Chamberlain, Olpherts (two), Ben Nakubuwai and Kris Welham helped them into a 30-4 interval lead.

Ian Watson's men make it three from three in The Qualifiers with a rampant twelve-try performance at the MBi Shay Stadium.

From there Salford did not look back against and second-half scores from Olpherts, Lama Tasi, Junior Sa’u (two), Hastings and Josh Wood completed a handsome 12-try victory for Ian Watson’s men.
Halifax, who opening the scoring through Sam Wood, remain pointless in the Super 8 Qualifiers after previous defeats to Toronto and Toulouse.
Salford Red Devils coach Ian Watson said: "The first 20 minutes we were a bit scratchy but the boys adapted very quickly and from there we were outstanding.
"Our middle men set the platform and from there Jackson Hastings and Rob Lui were able to do what they do best."
Halifax head coach Richard Marshall said: "I thought Salford were outstanding today and probably showed why they are top of this competition. They looked desperate, they looked organised and they competed well.
"In the first 20 minutes we were in the arm wrestle but made a couple of key errors at key times which got punished by a very good Super League team."
