Salford swoop for Harrison Hansen

Salford have signed Wigan back-rower Harrison Hansen for an undisclosed fee.

Hansen, 28, was named Samoa captain ahead of the World Cup, but an injury picked up in the warm-up game against England Knights at Salford forced him out of the tournament.

He leaves the Super League and Challenge Cup winners after 10 years in the Warriors first team, making more than 235 appearances.

Hansen told the club’s official website: “Marwan has been awesome and is the reason I am here signing for Salford today. I grew up and played for Folly and people always asked me if I would like to come back and play here. I always said it was something I wanted to do but the time had to be right and I feel now as though it is.

“I have signed a four-year deal and am really excited to be here right at the beginning of this special time for the Red Devils. There is a huge amount of excitement around what is happening here and I know the fans will come out and back us when we get out there in February.

“For me it is a great new challenge. I have achieved everything I could at Wigan and had a great time there. I’m not just coming to Salford for an easy ride. I have a set of standards and I constantly set myself the task of living up to them. There is a great bunch of players here, I know many of them already. The facilities now are second to none. This is the place to be.”

Harrison’s father Shane played for Salford in the 1980s.
