James Greenwood commits to Salford

Greenwood joined the Red Devils from Hull KR in 2020 and helped them reach the Challenge Cup final last October, scoring a try in the 17-16 defeat by Leeds at Wembley.

Salford coach Richard Marshall said: “James has been a pleasure to work with this year. It’s been no coincidence that the games we’ve played well in this season have involved James.

“I think he can further develop next year in what will be an exciting and fit pack. He could well be the cornerstone of that group after a good preseason and further emerge as a leader down the line.”

Greenwood said: “It was a simple decision for me to extend my stay, I’ve really enjoyed my time so far at Salford.

“I’m focused on doing my part for the team and giving it 100% for the fans every game. I’m looking forward to the next few seasons as we all look to push on and improve from this year.”

Salford director of rugby and operations Ian Blease said: “I’m delighted that Greeny has extended his stay here at Salford, he’s a brilliant individual and a quality player.

“I know he’s had a bit of bad luck this season with his injuries, but he’s been working hard off the field and with a good preseason, he’ll be back in top form in 2022.”

Greenwood has made more than 150 career appearances to date, having previously played for South Wales Scorpions, Wigan, London Broncos and Hull KR before his move to Salford.
