Salford announce Olpherts signing

Salford have confirmed the signing of Derrell Olpherts from Newcastle Thunder.

The utility-back has scored 14 tries in 15 games for the League One outfit so far this season and will join the club at the end of the current campaign.

Red Devils’ boss Ian Watson said: “We’re really excited to have captured his signature.

“There were a few other big Super League clubs trying to sign him, so we’re delighted that he’s decided that his future is here.

“He is a strong powerful runner who can play in the outside backs, and he backs this part of his game up with his defence.

“He’s got a great try scoring record and deserves the chance to have a crack in Super League – he’s got huge potential.”
