Vatuvei completes Salford move

Salford have confirmed the signing of winger Manu Vatuvei from the New Zealand Warriors until the end of the 2018 season.

Vatuvei has been a prolific try scorer for the Warriors, scoring 152 times in just over 200 appearances, and has developed a reputation for being one of the most feared outside backs in rugby league.

Red Devils’ boss Ian Watson said: “Manu is great signing for us. He has such an impact on the game from the backfield and is a real handful for opposition defences to deal with.

“Manu is a winner, and has experience of being in those high pressure, big game situations. He will be able to bring that experience into our existing playing group which will be a massive benefit for our young squad.

“I’ve been really impressed by how committed Manu is to come over here and be part of this group. He wants to come here and win things, he is fully prepared to work hard and earn the respect of the rest of the boys through his performances.

“Just the fact that a player of Manu’s stature and experience wants to come over and play for Salford shows how far we have come as a team and as a club.”
